Oceania Relay-Great fast hilly open gully area. Great run on first leg with Steve and Bob to complete 4th overall. Ran strong and fast and felt I was really racing-fastest leg of team. Had just overtaken two Aussie teams by smart fast route choice when 200m from home disaster struck Left ACL "exploded"-surgeons words not mine. Still did 8minks!Just running fast and hard on gentle downhill through pasture on hard dry ground.Hobbled back losing time but a long road ahead to full recovery but aim to be back for Denmark in April which is doable-Op on 23rd in Singapore with their best surgeon! Thought it was just a strain until I insisted on an MRI scan at Doc in Rotorua. "I'll be Back!"
