    Alice Robinson should be able to kick start her build up to the Beijing Winter Olympics at home this winter

    Alice Robinson should be able to kick start her build up to the Beijing Winter Olympics at home this winter


    The champion New Zealand skiier has been granted an exemption for her US based co coach Jeff Fergus to head down under along with her ski technician Pepe Culver.

    Her Kiwi co-coach Chris Knight will travel home from his base in Italy.

    Last season Robinson was forced to spend an extra two months in Europe due to the Government refusing to grant exceptions for her coaches.

    Fergus says it's a relief t be able to prepare Robinson properly.
