Sprint World Champion Emelie Ohrstig has struggled with an inflamed thyroid gland lately. – Everything has been tough for a long time, says Emelie to the Swedish newspaper Kuriren.
The World Champion was a couple weeks ago told that she had an inflamed thyroid gland. That message came after she had felt tired and drained for several weeks. She is now feeling better.
– It takes time to come back, so I can’t do a lot of training yet. I’m jogging to see how my body responds and I’ starting to finally feel better, says Ohrstig.
Emilie took part in the recent altitude camp in Ramsau, Austria, but didn’t train much.
– I didn’t train at all. I was there and got treatments from the doctors and physiotherapists, says, says Ohrstig to Kuriren
