Chemmy Alcott has suffered a late setback on her comeback from an ankle injury.
The 26-year-old Briton skier returned to training and was hoping to compete in the last World Cup stage in Maribor, Slovenia, but she admitted to needing more time to be fully fit. Alcott is confident to make the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships in Val d'Isere.
"Skiing is a very specific motion and I now realise I wasn't able to recreate it in the gym back home. So I may have been jumping the gun in terms of getting back racing. The World Champs next month is the biggest goal", she said to 'BBC South East Today'.
"I am at about 40 percent of the intensity I would be doing in a race, so there's still a way to go. The ankle feels ok but sometime I get a little discomfort where the break was. I am still very positive for Val d'Isere and I still have three weeks to get ready to go. I am building it up everyday - skiing hard until I start to feel the pain."
