Alpine skiing - Briton Alcott heading for her fourth Olympic Games
Yahoo News - about 3 years
British Alpine skier Chemmy Alcott has won the battle to compete at her fourth Winter Olympics despite re-breaking a leg last August and being unable to prove her fitness before the selection deadline. Alcott, who came 11th in the 2010 Vancouver super-combined and in the 2006 Turin downhill, had faced an anxious wait after returning to full-time training only in November. "Being able to compete in my fourth Olympic Games is no less meaningful for me than competing in my first in Salt Lake City in 2002," she said on her Facebook page.

    In January 2012 it was announced that Alcott would take part in the ITV programme Dancing on Ice.
    More Details Hide Details There was some concern that this would put at risk her rehabilitation from the fractured leg she sustained in December 2010. In June 2008, Alcott climbed Mount Kilimanjaro along with fellow ski racers Julia Mancuso and Laurenne Ross, and Alcott's then boyfriend Mark Weaver. The climb raised for international humanitarian organisation Right to Play. As of January 2009, she lives in Hampton Court, England.

  • 2009
    Age 26
    At the 2009 World Championships, Alcott finished 21st in the super G. In the following event, the super combined, Alcott had to restart her downhill run after approximately one minute due to a fall from the previous competitor, Frida Hansdotter.
    More Details Hide Details On her re-reun, she finished 13th on her way to 19th overall. In the actual Downhill race, Alcott finished 15th, whilst she finished 29th in the giant slalom – the result of a fall during the second run. Alcott won all five races at the British National Championships (Meribel, France), downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, and super combined titles.
  • 2008
    Age 25
    Alcott had a relatively poor 2008 World Cup season, except for 16th and 17th-place finishes in the downhill and super combined events at St. Anton and a 16th-place finish in the GS race in Maribor, Slovenia.

    More Details Hide Details It was the best result by a British woman for more than 30 years, after Gina Hathorn's 9th-place finish in a Slalom at Heavenly Valley in March 1972. However a knee ligament injury meant that Alcott was unable to defend her British titles.
