British skier Chemmy Alcott breaks right leg
LONDON (AP) — British alpine skier Chemmy Alcott has broken her right leg for the second time but is confident she can recover in time for the Sochi Olympics in February next year.
The 31-year-old Alcott, who broke the same leg three years ago in Lake Louise, Canada, said she will miss the first races of the World Cup season but should be fit for the Winter Olympics, to be held in Russia from Feb. 7-23.
After picking up her latest injury during a training camp, she wrote on her Facebook page: “Unfortunate set back but I am used to the adversity, just another chapter before the Hollywood finish in Sochi!!”
Alcott’s best results at the Olympics are two 11th-place finishes she achieved in 2006 and ’10.
