The IDL Doha 2015 will not feature the former High Jump World champion, Blanka Vlasic. Recuperation after a long term knee injury forced the Croatian star athlete to withdraw from this year’s IDL Doha edition and subsequently postpone her 2015 debut.
“I’m very disappointed to miss the Doha meeting, a place I have great memories, courtesy of a World Indoor Championships gold medal in 2010 and four Diamond League wins. When the IDL 2015 event schedule was announced, I was eager to return to Qatar to reunite with my friends and fans there, but I’m afraid I cannot compete for them this year”, says Blanka.
Blanka’s first appearance of the season could happen in Rome (June 4) or Birmingham (June 7).
