Does Injury Time help???

Peters & Sterritt

James Peters & Fynn Sterritt - winners in Enoshima

How is it that the two gold medals won at the Sailing World Cup in Enoshima were both won by athletes who missed most of the season through injury? The same happened for Xu Lijia who missed most of the 12 months before recuperating in time for London 2012 where the Chinese sailor won a dramatic Radial medal race in Weymouth. Maybe there is a danger of over training and failing to see the wood for the trees.
