Thiam to decide about the indoor season
MONACO (MON): World and Olympic heptathlon champion Nafissatou Thiam will decide if she will compete in the pentathlon at the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham after a training camp in Tenerife in January, informs IAAF. Thiam said breaking the 7000-point barrier in Gotzis "gave her a lot of confidence" and believes she is still capable of improving her best times in the track events. "Since I was a kid I remember not being really strong in [the running events] and I really want to limit the loss of points in those events and improve the points I get in my strongest events. Already in the 800m over the last few years I improved quite a bit. I can still do a bit better in the 200m," she said.
