Lucy Chaffer charts her first exciting weeks in the OWI/AIS skeleton program: We arrived at the AIS on Tuesday October 31, eager to be taking the next step in this skeleton adventure. There were the six ‘newbies’ - Chelsea, Renee, Lisa, Teniele, Ami and myself - along with Melissa Hoar and Emma Lincon-Smith. The next three days were filled with different presentations from ASADA, nutrition, massage therapy, psychology to attending the athletes assembly where they recognize the achievements of each sport. It was exciting to see how prominently skeleton featured in the video package. In between these presentations we also had time to work on our push starts, 30m time trials and a physio screening where we all found out more about ourselves.
