LANGDON HILLS Winter Paralympic medallist Caroline Powell admits a decision on whether she will still compete alongside Jade Etherington again will not be made until August.

The 19-year-old guided the visually impaired Etherington to four medals at Sochi.

But with questions marks over future funding and Etherington’s health, which forced her out of her final event in Sochi, the chances that the pair could eclipse their efforts at PyeongChang 2018 appears slim.

“At the moment we are both just currently in our own regimes where we are getting fit again and getting healthy again ahead of a winter season.” said Powell.

“I was only involved in the last six months of what was a four-year cycle for Jade so it was important for her to take a break and rest.

“I think she also has a few things going on with her own physical state and certain things she wants to do like getting qualifications and her teaching so this is now her time to sort that out.
