IBC dancer suffers injury

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A 28-year-old Hungarian dancer was undergoing medical tests Wednesday to determine what caused an injury during a performance during the USA International Ballet Competition in Jackson.

Tamas Krizsa, of Budapest, Hungary, is the non-competing partner of senior competitor Maki Onuki of Japan. They are dancers with the Washington Ballet in Washington D.C. Krizsa and Onuki were performing Tuesday night when during a solo variation, Krizsa staggered, then went to his hands and knees in pain.

IBC spokeswoman Chantel Lott tells The Clarion-Ledger that Krizsa was taken to Baptist Medical Center for evaluation. He returned to the hospital Thursday. Lott says Onuki will finish her program Thursday night.
