Netball defender Michaela Sokolich-Beatson understandably does not want to talk about the recent injury which put her back in rehab just one day away from her Silver Ferns comeback.
After nine months successfully recovering from a ruptured right Achilles tendon, and working extremely hard to get match fit, the Arkles Bay netballer was back training with the Silver Ferns for last month’s Cadbury Netball Series.
On October 19, during that training, she ruptured her other Achilles. In a press release, Silver Ferns coach Dame Noeline Taurua said the team is all gutted for Michaela, as is her ANZ Premiership side, the Northern Mystics.
Currently Michaela is back at home undergoing further assessment and treatment.
