CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy (AP) — Nobody bothered to call Chemmy Alcott and let her officially know that she was named to Britain’s Olympic team for the Sochi Games.
And that’s just fine for the London-based skier who is returning from her third major leg injury.
She tells The Associated Press after downhill training that she “saw in the press this morning that I was going. No one contacted me yet. … That’s probably a good thing. Because I’ve got a lot to focus on. That was just my second downhill run since July.”
Alcott broke her right leg for the third time during preseason training and only started competing again this month.
After four surgeries, she has a 15-inch nail holding the bones together inside her leg.
