WEYMOUTH'S Serita Shone has announced she will be competing in the bobsleigh British Championships on March 9 in Austria as a driver.

Shone broke her back in a 70mph accident in 2011, in which doctors feared would leave her paralysed for life.

Shone's re-acquaintance with a bobsleigh symbolises the remarkable recovery she has made after her terrifying crash in Germany, where she was a novice brake-woman in a two-seater bobsled practicing for her first competition, at the British championships.

When driver Fiona Harrison lost control in the fastest sector of the Winterberg track and their bobsleigh overturned, Shone was slammed against the ice beneath the weight of the 175-kilogram sled.
