The Bomber Latino, Nayra Alonso, looks set to miss the opening event of 2008. Following a nasty crash which broke her foot, she had hoped to be back on the water in time for the PWA Tenerife event, but bad news this week has put all her plans on stand by.

It was hoped that the break could repair without surgery, but after 3 weeks a second X-ray revealed she would have to go under the knife. Wires will apparently be used to hold the bone together and unfortunately for her it means another 8 weeks before we can expect to see her ripping up the waters of Gran Canaria again.

Nayra took the last win of 2008 in Sylt and was apparently ripping in South Africa before the accident. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery and a quick return to her top form.
