Chemmy breaks her leg... Again!

Chemmy Alcott has broken her leg, possibly setting her back for the Sochi Winter Olympics in February.

But it's not the first time it's happened. The 31-year-old spent a considerable amount of time out of action after she shattered her right leg in 2010.

She will now miss the first few races of the season recovering from her injury.

She posted on her Facebook page, "Slight set back in my Sochi prep as the last day of a fabulous camp where I was skiing technically stronger than ever, I had a little whoopsie."

"Rebroken my leg. Clean, easy break already weight bearing."

Alcott announced in June she would spend the build-up to the Winter Olympics training with the Norwegian team.
