Following several worrying rumors telling that Tatiana would retire soon, we decided to join her and ask her about her current feelings. Tati, who had finally started training again with Courteau a couple of weeks ago, and who thought that the injury was gone for good, was struck again. She might have an Ankylosing spondylitis, which is basically a chronic degenerative inflammatory arthritis. (Check the wikipedia page for more informations.) It would apparently not be possible to heal this disease, but it could go away sometimes. According to the doctors, a sportsman who would have this disease’s career would be filled with ups and downs.
Nonetheless, Tati stays hopeful and keeps believing. In a mail she sent us earlier, she told us that "unfortunately, I’m still suffering from my back, so I have to stop again, I can’t tell you more. It is pretty tough but I am ok and I am still optimistic."
Tatiana also visits the website from time to time and She wanted to thank you again : "I can’t thank you guys enough. I want to thank you and your team, and all the fans for your support and your encouragements ! "
To finish on a good note, Tatiana has been chosen to appear in the very famous Sports llustrated Swimsuit Issue 2009, which should be out in February in the United States. The photoshoot will take place in the beginning of December in Dominican Republic. Have fun Tat’ !
Best of luck Tatiana, we are sure that good things are yet to come.
Don’t forget that Tatiana really needs your messages and that she speaks English and Russian, so don’t hesitate to send her a few nice words wherever you come from.
