O P Jaisha to train from next week ignoring medical advice

Athlete OP Jaisha is confident that she can start her training next week having recovered well from H1N1 fever which she contracted during the Rio Olympics even though the SAI doctor has advised her a month’s rest.

“After getting discharged from the hospital on August 29, I am taking rest in my native – Thrissilery village near Manananthavady in Wayanad district. I will start from training from next week,” Jaisha said.

Jaisha had returned from Rio with fever and body ache in third week of this month and was hospitalized at Fortis Hospital on August 26 after she was tested positive for H1N1, couple of days after another athlete Sudha Singh was found to be suffering from the same disease.
