On the board: Lauren Staveley's Blog

8 July 2013

Lauren Staveley is an Australian snowboarder aiming to compete in the new snowboard-slopestyle event at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games. Staveley broke her foot in the last world cup of the 2012/2013 season and has been undergoing rehab to recover. Now she is ready and raring to go!

BLOG: I had my final x-ray two weeks ago and have been given the news that my foot is completely healed!

Which means I have finally gotten back on the board. I have spent some time in Buller and at Thredbo hitting the rails and getting back into it. I was expecting it to be fairly painful coming back from a broken foot, but so far it hasn't been too bad. I guess those hours of Physio and Rehab work paid off. Both Buller and Thredbo have had awesome rails set up, so I've been having heaps of fun.

This week I am heading back up to Buller to get ready for the Cattlemans rail Jam on Saturday night. Then Sunday morning the team and I fly out to Whistler, Canada to get some Jump training in before the World Cup in August. The weather for Whistler is looking like 25-30 degrees everyday for the two weeks we are there, and since I haven't had a summer in about five years now I actually cant wait!

Keep following the journey on-
