'It's all good!' - Eliza McCartney allays injury fears before Commonwealth Games

Kiwi pole vault star Eliza McCartney says that she's all good to go for next year's Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, having battled an Achilles injury this year.

McCartney, 20 was forced to withdraw from competition in July, with the injury, before coming back at the Athletics World Championships in August only to sit out of competition for the remainder of the year afterwards. 

Speaking in Auckland yesterday however, McCartney said she was in a good place to compete at next year's games on the Gold Coast.

"It's all good, we're just following along the rehab programme," she said.

"It's tracking well, so we're looking like it's going to be a good season."

The pole vault star struggled with an Achilles problem in 2017, but is on the mend. Source: 1 NEWS
