PARK CITY - World champion Sarah Hendrickson has successfully returned to training, five months after sustaining a knee injury, as she bids to make the US women's ski jumping team for next month's Winter Olympics. The 19-year-old has been jumping the 90-metre hill at Utah Olympic Park in Park City under the direction of head coach Alan Alborn and US Ski Team medical staff. Hendrickson injured herself training in Germany last August, and in her absence Japanese star Sara Takanashi, 17, has been blazing a trail, leading the World Cup ahead of her sport's Olympic debut. "I can FINALLY tell the world I am ski jumping again!!!!" Hendrickson said on Twitter. Speaking to usskiteam.com, she added: "The feeling of that first jump back was one of the best sensations in the entire world.”–AFP
