DAKAR (SEN): Marie-Josee Ta Lou has revealed she had a difficult run-in to the World Championships in London where she claimed silver medals in the 100m and 200m due to injuries and a loss of morale, informs Athletics Weekly. "I had trained but I had a difficult period at the start of the 2017 in terms of morale, finance and also physically. I started training in January but was injured in February. I remember calling my coach and saying: 'coach I don't want to run. I want to end my season' but I returned to training in March a bit behind. From March to May the priority was speed and strength but my coach and I still doubted if I could be at the right level by August," she said. Ta Lou spent the early part of her career training in Shanghai but she is now based in Dakar, Senegal.
