Cor­letto in come­back

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIAN de­fender Julie Cor­letto has been given the green light to re­sume court work as the Di­a­monds gather for fi­nal World Cup prepa­ra­tions at a train­ing camp to­day.

Di­a­monds coach Lisa Alexan­der said Cor­letto would be able to re­move the moon boot she has worn for foot sore­ness for the past four weeks.

But Alexan­der said the star goal de­fence, who is en­ter­ing her third and fi­nal World Cup ahead of re­tire­ment, would build up her on- court train­ing load grad­u­ally.

“( Cor­letto) just needed to have the boot on that lit­tle bit longer and she will be able to have it off once we get into camp,” Alexan­der said.

“She can now have her grad­u­ated re­turn ( to court work), which will be pretty nor­mal re­ally.”
