Chemmy Alcott out of giant slalom

2/17/2014 - Olympic Sports

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- Chemmy Alcott, Britain's only female Alpine ski racer at the Sochi Games, tells The Associated Press that her Olympics are over.

Alcott held out hope that the British team would let her enter Tuesday's giant slalom, but she said after a practice session Monday that she won't compete in that event.

Instead, she was out on the slope Monday with an eye to being ready for the resumption of the World Cup circuit.

Alcott has broken her right leg three times, and an injury in preseason training in August sidelined her until last month.

At the Sochi Olympics, she finished 19th in the downhill and 23rd in the super-G. She entered the super-combined, but only did the downhill leg for training purposes and skipped the slalom leg.
