April looks to bounce back after Berlin breakdown
- Updated: October 2, 2015
London Olympian Lusapho April is hoping to be up to full speed after a disappointing Berlin Marathon last week, writes Mark Etheridge.
April, a regular visitor to Germany with victories at the Hannover Marathon, failed to finish the race, won by Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge in a speedy 2hr 04min.
‘It’s a bout of tendinitis in my shin which is swollen,’ he told Road to Rio 2016 on Friday. ‘But with some treatment I should be back in no time and I’m also taking some anti-inflammatory pills.
‘I just hope I won’t be out for long as it’s a new injury, said the former third-placed finisher at the New York Marathon.
‘As for my race, I stopped at 38km as a precaution. At this stage I haven’t worked out what my next race is going to be.’
