Had to press the pause button. Lisa Vaelin announced today that she must pass the Gymnastics World Cup Finals, one of the most important deadlines to qualify for the Games. “I didn't want to accept it at first,” she shares with Sporza. “But when I was in the emergency room, I realized my body needed more rest.”
Big hit to Lisa Vaelin's account.
The 19-year-old gymnast – who specializes in vaulting – is forced to be sidelined due to underlying ailments in her body.
“After having glandular fever in September and October, I was still suffering from infections, which meant my training wasn’t going as well as I wanted,” she tells her story.
Faileen continued to have a fever, and doctors have yet to find any explanation for this phenomenon. “I always got the necessary rest, but I always felt that my body needed more,” shares our compatriot.
“At first I didn't want to accept it, but the realization came that I hit the pause button when I was in the emergency room a few weeks ago.”
My health comes first.
Therefore, Faelin cannot participate in the Gymnastics World Cup finals. A series of four competitions in which gymnasts attempt to qualify for the Olympic Games.
“I was never able to get there in good shape on time,” she realizes. “So I decided not to consider gaming as my main goal anymore. My health comes first,” he added.
So Vaelin only has the European Championships left to qualify for the all-around team.
“Although I can't say anything about my chances. I will first go on vacation to get complete rest. Then I will find out if the European Championship is possible,” he added.
“There is still hope,” concludes the 19-year-old gymnast.
