Other information
CHANGE OF DISCIPLINE
She underwent several eye operations in mid-2014, and found that her recovery as well as her advancing age made it difficult to return to sport. "With all the efforts the sport requires and my advancing age, I am finding it more difficult to compete with the best international athletes and to perform well at international championships." As a result, she decided to stop sprint training and competing over shorter distances, instead wanting to focus on her "first love" of long distance running.
