After the world title is still far off: Russian pole vault star Yelena Isinbayeva will continue her career. She wants to take a baby break – and be at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio back again.
Pole-vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva has stressed after their World Cup win in Moscow, only to interrupt their career in the next year and do not want to quit. “I will not resign,” the 31-year-old Russian said on Tuesday evening after she was in the Luzhniki Stadium for the third time become world champion.
“I’ll take a break, get a baby and then try to return to the Olympics in 2016.” This is a “simple bill,” said the world record holder. “Nine months of a baby in the belly, then another silent nine months – that’s 18 months, so I can be here in Rio..”
A final resignation was only an issue for them, when they should have problems after her pregnancy, to regain their former sporting level again.
Isinbayeva had always taken care of speculation about a definite departure from competitive sports in the run up to the World Championships in Athletics. Their world title in Moscow called them in the evening despite two Olympic victories and a total of 30 jumps world record as the most important success of their career. “That was my home ground, my home World Cup. Everyone stood behind me here today, I’ve felt. That gave me a lot of energy,” Isinbayeva said.
