IAAF.org: Paul Tergat – now the focus is only Athens

exclusive interview

13.04.2004

Following the annoucement a fortnight ago that Paul Tergat had sustained a calf injury and so would not toe the starting line at next Sunday’s Flora London Marathon (18 April), the World Marathon record holder has now turned his full attention to the summer’s Athens Olympic marathon for which he has already been pre-selected by Athletics Kenya.

Jürg Wirz recently caught up with Tergat and interviewed him exclusively for the IAAF internet about his injury and of course Athens

London would have been a good opportunity

“The injury happend one month ago,“ the Kenyan star explained. “I was not able to train the whole of March.“

The first two weeks he tried to treat the injury in Kenya but after talking to his coach Dr. Gabriele Rosa he decided to go to Brescia in Italy where Rosa’s son Marco is the medical director of the “Centro Marathon“, a medical centre which has all the necessary facilities. As such, in the first week of April Tergat was able to resume his training.

“London would have been a good opportunity seeing most of the main contenders for the Olympic gold. The one who is going to win in London will have a psychological advantage. But now the focus is on Athens.“
