Not Again!

Not Again!

by | Mar 17, 2021

A lot has happened since my last blog.

In January Brett and I competed at the World Cups in Veysonnaz, Switzerland – It was a challenge to say the least. Our training had gone really well prior to the races but when I got into the start gate, I switched my negative brain on and my nerves got the better of me – I performed badly – poor Brett had to drag me down the hill kicking and screaming.

Out of the four races we managed to get one bronze medal – I know I can do better – we have a lot of work to do.

After two weeks at home we headed out to Austria on the 16th February. My confidence was still so low but with some encouragement and 3 good days of coaching and training, I decided to race. However, on the day of the race, I had a big crash during the warm-up but got back up and continued to complete inspection but I pulled out of the race on the advice of my Team. I was sent to hospital, where I ended up staying for 3 days. After some tests and an MRI, I was diagnosed with yet another concussion and sent back home to the UK.

I am now recovering really well and having regular physio with Fiona Errington. I’m working hard to get myself back up and running to go skiing again soon.

It is less than a year to go until the Beijing 2022 Winter Paralympics. This is not the position I wanted to be in, this close too to the Games and similar to my last build up in 2018. However, compared to my last concussion, I feel much stronger mentally so I will do everything in my power to get myself faster and stronger.
