12 Jan 08 - Shelley back on ice

Just 13 weeks after giving birth to Ella-Marie and finally having her long-awaited knee operation, Shelley is currently out in North America training on ice for the first time in over a year.

"It's great to be back! Obviously I'm not race fit by any means yet, but I needed to get back onto the sled and start to get my feeling back again after so long out with injuries and being pregnant with Ella-Marie"- Shelley told us -"Wednesday (9th Jan) was the first time I have pushed on ice and slid in over a year, and that day went successfully. My main aim is to try and get through these next three weeks and learn as much as possible about timings and rhythms of the tracks again. I'll then head back to the UK where I'll start to train specifically for the sport"

06 Feb 07 - World Champs Bid Hamstrung!

Following her 10th place finish in St Moritz which under the circumstances (described below) she was actually quite pleased with, Shelley has now returned to the UK and will probably miss the remainder of the World Cup Series.

This is so that, hopefully, a long-awaited knee operation can be brought forward to enable her to start conditioning training earlier in preparation for next season. Failing that, if the surgery has to wait but the injuries can be rehabilitated in time, she might just be able to make the Euro Champs in Konigsee.  

It was during WC Round 5 in Igls the previous week that - in trying to ignore the pain and push faster in preparation the World Champs - her knee problems were aggravated which, in turn, led to hamstring strains.

21 Jan 07 - Top Ten placing in Igls

With one week to go to the World Champs in St Moritz, Shelley records her second successive top ten finish of the World Cup series; Igls was unusual in that her second run saw her slip a couple of places after placing 8th after the first heat.
