Terrassa — Izzy Petter couldn’t summon a glance in the aftermath of the hit she took against China as No 1 runner. “I’m not going to lie,” she tells The Hockey Paper, “I didn’t look at it until I got out of the medical room. It was fractured and the nail bed came up through my finger which wasn’t very nice.”
She is happy to report that all is well with her hand thanks to some anesthetic and English grit ahead of a key quarter-final game she is relishing to take part in.
“It was numb so I couldn’t feel it at all, which was great otherwise it would have been quite painful. At the time it was quite excruciating,” she adds.
