Alcott breaks leg again
Chemmy Alcott's preparations for next year's Sochi Winter Olympics have suffered a setback after the British skier broke her leg again.
The 31-year-old, who spent a considerable time out of action after smashing her right leg in 2010, will now miss the first few races of this season in order to recover from her latest injury.
However, Alcott is confident she will be fit in time for Sochi next February.
"Slight set back in my Sochi prep as the last day of a fabulous camp where I was skiing technically stronger than ever, I had a little whoopsie," she said on her official Facebook page.
"Rebroken my leg. Clean, easy break already weight bearing.
"Medical opinion is I will miss first races but will be good to go full speed ahead after.
"Unfortunate set back but I am used to the adversity, just another chapter before the Hollywood finish in Sochi!!"
Alcott announced in June she would spend the build-up to the Winter Olympics training with the Norwegian team.
