Getting creative with injuries.

words by Lauren Staveley

While my northern winter started off really well, unfortunately it was cut short when I broke my foot at the World Cup in the Czech Republic. I broke my 5th metatarsal on my right foot. But not too worry after 6 weeks on crutches I am back walking and have begun a serious rehab program with Anthony Khoury which will have me back on track by June.

Apart from breaking my foot I had an awesome season, I competed in two Snowboard Slopestyle World Cups (Copper Mt, USA and Spindleruv Mlyn, Czech Republic) I also represented Aus in the World Champs this year at Stoneham Canada, where I obtained 13th place my best result of the season on the world tour. I am currently sitting in 23rd place on the world ranking list and am hoping to hold or improve my position to qualify for the 2014 games! Here is an edit I made while I was training in Breckenridge

While I've been injured and unable to drive I decided to get creative and start making arts and crafts with my cousin Chloe. We are getting a stall at the St Andrew Market to sell our creations and have now made an Instagram called doodadsandtrinkets to sell our things!

I'm super excited to start the Aussie season at Buller and can't wait to get to another Chicks with Sticks session!
