Figure skater Fumie Suguri will miss the upcoming Japan International Challenge due to inflammation in her right groin, the Japan Skating Federation said Wednesday.

Yoshie Onda will compete in Suguri’s place at the one-day event being held at Higashifushimi Ice Arena in Tokyo on Saturday.

Suguri will require two weeks of treatment to recover, officials said.
