      Out a few weeks, had problems during summer. Applied ice, disappeared -- so they thought. Now off to recover a bit, attempt to gauge progress in a few weeks. Light indoor season. Can:t do any jump training right now.

        perhaps it explains her poor peking performances

        concentrating solely on lj & healthy, she really shouda murdered 7m ( & that's from a non-fan )

          Eric, any comments to Aftonbladet's mentioning of coach Bergvall as somebody who has been criticized for pushing his athletes too hard?

            Epelle, has she or her coach made any statements about what event's she's doing in 09? I wonder if this with influence her decision?

            I read an article (after the LJ I think) where she said she will do the LJ AND heptathlon in 2009.

            08 injury or not, with the resurgence in standard in the heptalon in 08, Kluft should go back to that event IMO.

              A return to the heptathlon will definitely not happen in 2009 - and most likely never. She will stick to the horizontal jumps - mainly the LJ.

              She has never said or even hinted that she regretted her move away from the heptathlon and contemplated to go back to the heptathlon. Quite the contrary she has repeatedly been adamant in stressing how much she appreciates training for the horizontal jumps only.

                Of course, she could have PRed in both the LJ and TJ in Beijing and gotten only a bronze and a 10th. She doesn't have the same kind of horizontal jump talent as she did as an all-arounder.

                  I definately read it in one article, regardless of whether it was true!

                  I would like to see her to the heptathlon, but I understand if she doesnt. But she could end up never medalling again in amajor meet!

                    ... and, if she didn:t, she:d be fine with that with not a single regret. To her, it:s about having fun. I think she perhaps has that tatooed on her forehead.

                      i'd disagree

                      she's got ?6.97pb whilst doing the hepta, so that pb was set of limited training

                      if did lj solely, she obviously woud have a better pb ( assuming fit ) - it may not be a huge increase, but i see no reason why she coudn't go 7.10 - 7.20 & that kinda mark woud have a likely >50% chance of gold in any global

                      we got example of naide who upped her lj significantly when dropping the hepta & kluft is a helluva better natural talent than her

                          More Kluft debates, fact is 1 x olympic 3 x world 2 x european gold meadles, why go back to heptathlon?? what is the need thats done! let her enjoy her sport, lets see what she can do in LJ and TJ hell if she wants to focus on HJ let her!!

                          she could do something amazing in either, everyone knows the potential... if she never wins another gold meadle at least she will have enjoyed athletics and been hugely succesful!

                          hope she gets well soon!!!

                            never enjoyed her hyperactive, childlike celebrating when she burst on the scene - albeit she has toned that down a tad as she has matured

                              Nice girl from Växjö. Small city. Hugely and immensely successful, talented and energetic. I need to dig up those journalist quotes from a few years back used to describe her when she popped up on the senior scene.
