Triathlon: Emma Snowsill Undergoes Surgery

Olympic Triathon Coach Craig Walton has advised that his fiancée Emma Snowsill has today undergone keyhole surgery to repair minor damage to the labrum cartilage of her hip.

Explaining that the Beijing Olympic Gold Medallist returned to Australia from the AIS Triathlon Camp in France earlier in the week to seek local medical attention, had been experiencing pain during her last few races which was impacting on her training & performance.

"The prognosis is good" said Walton "the surgeon believes the repair will be completely successful so Emma is itching to return to the World Championship Series. She will now rest & recover before starting full training again and is optimistic about being at peak fitness in time for the Grand Final on the Gold Coast on September 12".
