Successfully defending her World title and breaking her own championship record in the process, Jacinta Carroll has wowed crowds at the 2015 World Ski Championships in Chapala, Mexico.
Carroll suffered a broken toe less than two weeks ago, which may have limited her preparation but not her results. She was the final jump competitor to leave the dock and required a 51.6m jump to take the lead.
“With my broken toe and joint all strapped up I screamed getting my bindings on. Once my foot was in though, it was game on and I had harder things to focus on,” said Carroll.
“I went out focused knowing what to do. On my first jump it all came together and I was able to fly 57.6m.”
Not only did Carroll break her own world championship record on her first jump, she also recorded the biggest winning margin at a world title event.
