As I write this blog, Brett and I have just had our first day back on snow since my crash in South Korea…remarkably, I can still ski! I was worried about getting back on my skis but it’s going to be OK. I have loved my time in Glasgow’s Snow Factor. We have been training with Mike Crawford this week. He has been a real confidence booster. I am going to be back on track with my Pyeongchang 2018 schedule, much quicker than I had anticipated. Chile is our next stop in August. I’m now really looking forward to this camp. My fitness is also coming together, I have tried to maintain some sort of fitness throughout my concussion. I have had so much help from Mike Burrell, Scott Crawford, Catherine Smaill, Amanda Pirie and Kelley Fay and Niall Elliott – thanks Guys!

It was great to see who the final Team might be for Pyeongchang and to meet the BPA team.
We are so excited for what lies ahead for us. We have a lot of work to do as the competition is strong but we are ready to put our all into our fitness and training.
We have some incredible support through the Scottish Institute of Sport and our Team coaches, especially Amanda Pirie and Euan Bennet and want to make sure we make them proud.
Brett and I have spent the majority of 2 weeks in Scotland on a ‘back to snow’ programme and speaking to Niall Elliott, the Team doctor, Scott and Cappy.
I feel so much more confident than I did a couple of month ago, thanks to the efforts of some great people – thank you to you all.
