The athlete had competed in the women’s marathon in Rio Olympics.
Jaisha said she knows her body well and is feeling good and ready for forthcoming competitions, including National Open Athletics Championships and Commonwealth Games.
“I know my body very well. I am feeling good and ready to forthcoming competitions including 2018 Commonwealth Games and the National Open Athletics Championships to be held at Lucknow, beginning from September 25 to September 28,” she said.
Neither any doctor has advised her to take a month’s rest nor she is on medicines anymore, Jaisha said. “No doctor has advised me for a month’s rest and I am not on medicines for now,” she said.
Dr Sarla at SAI, on the contrary, said Jaisha has been advised a month’s rest before starting her training. “We have advised Jaisha to take a month’s bed rest before starting her training session,” she said.
Interestingly, Jaisha had raised panic among the officials of the Sports Authority of India (SAI) as she was reluctant to get her blood tested at the state-run Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases for suspected H1N1.
However, Jaisha gave in to their plea after an arduous effort.
The athlete was not physically available since August 21 after she had left SAI premises to leave for Kerala, but stayed in Bengaluru. She was however located by the officials of SAI and Karnataka Health Department on August 24.
Asked in which city she would start her training, Jaisha said,”I am yet to decide on this, but before that I am attending an event organized by the Kerala Government in Ludhiana, Punjab on September six. I will make a decision in this regard after this event.”
