Ivonne Nóchez made her first practice on skates after the fall

Ivonne Nóchez, athlete of the Effort and Glory Program, returned to practice skating in Cali, Colombia, after the minimal clavicle fracture she suffered on Saturday, April 29 at the European Skating Cup in Gross Gerau, Germany.

As she announced last week, the skater is doing her first practices alone, with an immobilizer on her right arm.

“I’m happy to be back on the track; I just went to ride, and I can’t do other movements with my arm; I just went to try to get the feel of the boot,” said Nóchez from Colombia.

The medical diagnosis revealed that after the fall during the competition on the Gross Gerau track, Ivonne suffered a minimal clavicle fracture.

“At the moment, it’s just rolling, although I’m already doing some lightweight training on a machine, obviously, and I can’t do any other work,” the skater added.

The athlete also commented that her exercise routine includes cycling on rollers.

Last week, Ivonne said she remains confident that she will soon be training normally and will be able to represent the country in the best possible way at the XXIV Central American and Caribbean Games San Salvador 2023.

“I think that this injury doesn’t change my goals. My expectations are still high; I still want to be on the podium. I don’t think this is something that will prevent me from achieving that goal. I know I have the skills, and that’s what it’s all about—turning the page and trusting that everything is fine,” she said days ago.
