Brenna Dowell on Battling Back from a Broken Hand at Visa Championships


First year senior elite Brenna Dowell of GAGE established herself as one to watch this year with her strong performance at the recent international assignment in Jesolo, Italy. However, during the podium training of her first meet of the US season - the Secret US Classic - Dowell suffered a broken hand that kept her out of the event. She rebounded with a solid performance at the Visa Championships, placing 9th all around and advancing to the 2012 US Olympic Trials in San Jose.
