To 14h was Nafi Thiam will be back in business. Since they on January 7, a crack in the linkerkuit suffered, existed in her days, especially from the recovering and training. That goes after a while get bored, she confessed. Today she was finally on her comeback during the not only in Tournai. And Thiam did not disappoint. At javelin she got to her fifth attempt 52m71 - her fifth best throw ever and just as her trainer Roger Lespagnard it had predicted. Only at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in London, the european CHAMPIONSHIPS in Berlin, the Games in Rio and in Götzis 2017 (PR 59m32) threw them further. “I'm not dissatisfied with it because I have my run-up changed a little but in training, it went much further. I was not completely relaxed because there are so many cameras on me were focused,” said the Belgian.
At the 200m, did the zevenkampster it even better. With wind in the disadvantage (-1,5 m/s) ran Thiam to a time of 24.37, three hundreds of a second under her previous PR that they on the 27th of may 2017 in Götzis ran. “I really enjoy because I have by my injury not many races can walk. Sooner or later that record, however, entering into, I knew. Maybe even quicker outside of a son because now I had only the javelin in the legs while that is normally the last test of the day.”
after her performance in the 4x100m nodded Lespagnard satisfied - he saw that it was good. “This is the test that I wanted to see. On the 200m I know that they had a faster time is worth.” Also Thiam himself, who after the competition, dozens of signatures had to hand out and for selfies as he posed, was happy that everything is good what expired. She can now prepare for her next appointment: the Décastar meeting in the French Talance at the end of June. “That is the only son that I am finishing for the world cup. If trials do not go well, is that not a disaster because it is a long season. I have plenty of time to get it to work at all.”
