Blanka Vlasic has decided to not compete until the end of the indoor season.
„After Friday’s meet in my hometown Split I have decided to NOT continue this indoor season. This mean I will not go to the World Indoor Championships in Portland in March.
I am in great physical shape. Perhaps the best I have ever been in. However I still have a problem with my right Achilles that is bordering me and I am not ready to take a risk that could jeopardize the Olympics in Rio this summer. This is of course the most important target for me this year. I practically jumped 1.95 on one leg on Friday and if I get everything in order in the same way as I did for the Worlds in Beijing last year I will be able to fly very high in Rio.
I hope everyone understand my decision to not take any stupid risk when it is an Olympic year. Now I will together with my team start my preparation and rehab and be ready for the summer and Olympics in Rio“, Blanka said.
