Schippers: ‘Have title to release without to be able to fight,”

Dafne Schippers, frustrated at it’s best at that they will Monday, the league has been forced to opt out of the 200 meters at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in athletics in Doha. The Dutch felt that they are in shape, and thus the more difficult it title, can’t defend himself.

“To defend my title, that’s why I have to go to Doha and have come. I wanted to compete on the track, and then you lose it. But for now, I need to get my world title is let go without cause, to be able to fight,'” says Schippers, Monday evening at the Khalifa International Stadium.

The 27-year-old Sailors, who are well into 2015 already by 2017 gold is picked up in the 200 meters, was injured on Sunday in the semi-finals of the 100 meters. They have placed themselves for the final battle, but she can’t because of the pain in the groin, not the absolute peak, could make the injury would not force the issue.

“After about ten yards in its semi-final it was in my groin, as you can see I also have a step to the side to make. After the race, I felt that it was during the warm-up prior to the finals, is still so looked at Captains back. However, she thought it would be very difficult to get him back for the final battle.

“I want to go through the fire, walk through each one again to go. That made the decision to not start in the final is very difficult. However, my team is going to say, too, it is the right decision to have been. It was the Olympics next year in Tokyo, and also in the back of my mind.”


Schippers: a Lot of crying after the decision not to start in the 200 meters, world CHAMPIONSHIPS

Hard to know if I can have the relay disconnect’

Boaters had been at that time, it was the hope that they will be able to start in the 200-meters, of which, on Monday, the series will have been met. During a test Monday afternoon in a hall next to the stadium, it turned out that that wasn’t going to. “If there is a bug, or 70 percent, I felt a lot of pain. And, at 70 percent I can’t and 200 metres from the hotel. It went on for much longer.”

The 4×100-meter, which is the third item for the Skippers in the planning of this world cup, still has no end. Friday should be in the Dutch team for the action to come in the series, and on Saturday, the final battle.

“It’s hard to know if I am going to pick up. I have a lot of it, but we really need a day-to-day. I may not be all of the risks, but make sure you are happy from the start, because I feel like I’m in shape.”

“I ran a good time on the course

According to Schippers, is even in the best of form this season. This makes it difficult for her to understand now that the body is wrong.

“I’ve seen the past few weeks and have a really good training camp in Turkey, and also had a good time on the course. That gave me a good feeling, but I get nothing in return. Literally it is not. Not a personal best in the 200 meters and have no story. And that is a very, very bad.”

Furthermore, the Netherlands still has a trump card in the 200 meters. Jamile Samuel, had qualified on Monday for the semi-finals, but it is not one of the absolute favourites.
