Nové Město na Morava (Žďársko) – Biathlete Jessica Jislová is back in the national team after a muscle injury and missing the World Championships in Oberhof. The 28-year-old native of Jablonec nad Nisou believes that she has found the cause of her health problems with the doctors during her more than a month's break, and she would like to complete Friday's World Cup sprint in Nové Město na Morava without pain. She told journalists in the Vysočina Arena that she will decide after the home game whether she will continue the season or not.

“We'll see how I'm really doing on Friday. I felt pretty good during training. I think it's also because of how rested the body is. I hope that the pleasant feeling will last until the races,” said Jislová.

The twenty-ninth woman of the World Cup has dealt with pain in the rib area since the beginning of the year. Before the World Cup in February, the problem worsened and doctors advised her to rest. But that one didn't work, and ten days ago, Jislová was still having difficulties. However, she managed to find the cause with experts.

“What we've allowed is basically what I've been saying all along, that it hurts under the shoulder blade and between the ribs. So a muscle that basically you can't get to pretty much. It's the intercostals and it's under the shoulder blade. Such a super special place,” said Jislová.

According to her, the work of all the doctors available to her helped her. “I visited so many people that if I had to name them all, I probably wouldn't be able to do it. I have to say that they took good care of me and I met a lot of new people. It was collective work. But I was definitely at Roman Karpíšek's and then at the Center movement medicine with Professor (Pavlo) Kolář and the other people who work with him,” Jislová pointed out.

Before the World Cup in Nové Město in Moravia, he sets successive goals. He wants to hit Friday's sprint first and then decide what to do next. Jislová completed her last race at the end of January in Anterselva. “I'll just wait to see how it looks after the sprint, then I'll sit down with the coaches and discuss the next step. I'm normally packed, so we'll see,” she said. motivation. “However, I really said to myself: Ok, I missed the World Cup, but I don't want to miss anything else. So I would try to come back, even if it was somewhere else. But since it's here and we didn't have to deal with transportation, it was easier for me. On the way here, I also put myself in further rehabilitation, so it was practical,” the Czech representative recounted with a smile.

She has already started three times at the home World Cup, but always in front of empty stands due to measures against the coronavirus. “I'm really looking forward to it. And I'm curious about what it's really like here with the fans,” said Jislová.

During the World Cup in February, she also learned something from her opponents on television. work with a weapon. “When I'm racing, I don't look at it. But now it was nice that I could see what the girls actually look like during the races. I also saw something in their work with weapons. But I won't try it now. There will be time for that after the season,” said Jislová.

After the end of the World Cup in March, the stable member of the relay team will try to pay more attention to her current health problems. “Probably yes. We're not quite sure what it all became. Egil (coach Gjelland) thinks a bit that there must have been some mistake in the training. Maybe some power went too far or something. But it's probably something long-term that has been building up and then it all came together,” Jislová added.
