British track sprinter undergoes successful second operation in the Netherlands after fracturing her pelvis and back in the Rotterdam Six-Day
– Will return home to Britain later this week
Victoria Williamson is continuing to recover well after a horror crash at the Rotterdam Six Day on Saturday evening left her with serous injuries.
Williamson recorded a short video message, which her father posted on social media. The 22-year-old track sprinter from Norfolk can be seen smiling and winking as a thank you to the hundreds of well-wishers who have sent her messages of support.
Williamson was involved in a collision with Dutch rider Elis Ligtee during a heat of the sprint, leaving her with a fractured pelvis, ribs and vertebrae. Tuesday’s operation was undertaken to insert screws into her pelvis to repair the fracture.
“Operation Number 2 gone well, being looked after well in Holland. Finally I can eat!!” Williamson tweeted from her hospital bed. Operation Number 2 gone well, being looked after well in Holland.
