British number one skier, Chemmy Alcott, is returning to racing.
It is clearly an emotional return for Chemmy, who wrote on her Facebook page yesterday: “I wanted my comeback to be here at Lake Louise because of the pristine pistes, huge cheers and big grinning smiles!”
After a practice run yesterday, a fellow ski racer, Larisa Yurkiw, commented: “My friend and teammate… Chemmy flew down Lake Louise at 131km/hr straight through the place that handed her two years of physical and mental turmoil. With bravery and an incredible mindset, Chemmy is back.”
Welcome back Chemmy, and good luck from us all at FSN!
