There were many set backs. In Melbourne in 1995 , Jacky developed Status Epelepticus, was allergic to her drugs and suffered multi-organ failure. After many weeks in hospital, she was airlifted home to London. Just five stone in weight, she resumed training and regained her place in the Team. Winner of many Gold, Silver and Bronze medals and `World Champion`, plus awards for bravery and `Best Athlete`, Jacqueline`s achievements were recognised at an Investiture , by Prince Charles. Her sport is mainly unnoticed as not an Olympic event. Jacky retired from Competition in 2009 and still retains British, European and World records. Today she trains skiers in America. Jacky would be a worthy torchbearer. ..
