World champ fights to return
WORLD champion triathlete Emma Moffatt is recovering well from a broken shoulder.
It’s been six weeks since one of Woolgoolga’s finest exports injured herself after a nasty bike fall while descending a wet hill in the Gold Coast Hinterland, but she insists that the injury is only a minor set-back as she prepares to defend her world championship title.
The reigning Dextro Energy ITU World Championship Series champion will sit out this weekend’s Mooloolaba World Cup event but is working towards being right for the opening event in the World Championship Series which is being held in Sydney on April 11.
While the good news on the injury front is that the shoulder will heal completely without surgery, the bad news is that it meant the 25-year-old has spent plenty of valuable training time not doing any swimming.
Moffatt is still getting plenty of kilometres into her legs with plenty of running as well as riding on a wind trainer.
