Foot update

Its two weeks today since I hurt my foot during the heptathlon at Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Thank you so much for all your emails of support, sorry I have not been able to reply to all of them.

Since I have been home I have had an MRI, another x-ray and seen a surgeon.

Turns out as well as two broken bones, I have also torn my lisfranc ligament in my mid-foot which helps to keep the foot stable. As a result I need to have surgery to pin the foot back into place to let the ligament heal in the correct position. I hope to have this done in the next three weeks.

Unfortunately this means I will not be able to compete this summer. World Champs are being held in Korea at the end of August 2011. Whether I can compete there or not will depend on how the recovery and rehab goes and whether or not I am able to post an A standard qualifing mark (6150 points) before the 8th August. At the moment I have only done the B standard (5950 points).

For now I will try and make the crutches, the moon-boot, the pool and the gym my friends and keep my eyes firmly on London 2012!
