A host of athlete's returning in time for Sochi

Chemmy Alcott is one of just a host of athletes getting ready to return from injury in time for Sochi 2014.

British skier Chemmy Alcott hit yet another bump in her comeback from the injury she suffered during a fall in Lake Louise in 2010. While training in Saas Fee she broke her leg again.

“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!” she wrote on her Facebook page.

Despite doctors’ predictions that she might have to skip the first races of the season, Alcott is keeping her spirit high and her goal in focus. The recently engaged 31 year-old is aiming to compete at the Olympic Games in Sochi and is working hard to meet her goal.

And while all of the above racers are on the way back from an injury, in recent days Marion Rolland (FRA), 2013 World Champion in downhill suffered a knee injury, which required surgery and won’t be competing next season.
