“Unfortunately myocarditis is holding me back at the moment. It’s certainly not an easy time for me, but I’m not giving up. I hope to be back soon, chasing my dreams… and competitors,” she wrote. This is however the end of the road for her career. “Nobody can say how long I’ll have to put my career on hold,” she admitted.
The 31-year-old is said to feel “tired” everyday and after her heart rate shot up during an easy endurance run last month, she consulted a doctor who diagnosed her with myocarditis.
The veteran runner had planned to go on training camp in Portugal early this year, but this was canceled after her diagnosis. The runner who specializes in the 3000 meters steeplechase, won the silver medal at the 2018 European Championships.
Her personal best of 9:37.81 is the current Swiss national record.
