Blanka Vlasic is one of the greatest women high jumpers in history. Coming back from injuries has been nearly three years of challenges. In Paris, Blanka gave us one of the most heartfelt interviews (http://www.runblogrun.com/2014/07/your-adidas-moment-7-july-2014-audio-blanka-vlasic-interview-pre-meeting-areva-with-larry-eder-runblogrun.html) of her career. 

Returns to elite levels come in parts, not equal parts. Blanka Vlasic did not compete in the Europeans, due to a knee injury. As the knee injury has shown progress, she will competing in the Weltklasse on 28 August 2014.

Vlasic was overjoyed to hit 2.00 meters this season. Can she go higher? We shall have to see! 

Here is the piece from EME News on her return to competition!
