Special boot sets up Alcott comeback
- From the section Winter Sports
GB skier Chemmy Alcott attends a special inner-boot-fitting in Courchevel, France, to try to combat the pain of skiing after injury.
Alcott suffered a compound fracture of her right leg at the start of last season, during downhill training in Lake Louise, Canada.
The 29-year-old had to have nine screws and a large metal plate inserted into her shattered leg and doctors said she wouldn't be able to race without pain killers, but Alcott is determined to return to competition after missing the 2011-12 season.
