BERLIN (Reuters) - World and Olympic champion Kristina Vogel, who was paralysed following a training crash in June, said on Wednesday she was ready to tackle her new life but has had no contact with the Dutch rider involved in the collision.

In a news conference at the Berlin hospital where she has been treated, Vogel, a record 11-time world champion, said she had accepted the fact that she would not walk again moments after the accident at the Cottbus Sport Centre Velodrome.
