Why most of us have never heard of Petra Korpi

Kiira Korpi has an older sister. Kiira talks about Petra and their youthful sisterly rivalries here.

But why is Petra not competing today?

When Petra was fifteen the back of her thigh ruptured on ice, and it never healed completely. For eleven years she had given everything for skating, spend numerous hours at the rink and travelled for competitions....Quitting skating was not an easy decision for her, but not a shock either. She moved to synchronized skating for two years, but left the ice after that only to occasionally coach the young skaters.
