All of this year’s health troubles have been gradually cured and the Olympic Champion and the Marathon World Champion Jaroslav Kulhavy is quickly achieving the corresponding condition. It has been confirmed by the performance tests and examinations which Jara passed in the laboratory of MSc. Jiri Novotny shortly after his return from the first training camp on the Gran Canaria. The autumn series of medical examinations revealed the cause of breathing difficulties under higher load which Jaroslav Kulhavy complained about during the season. The diagnosis is Bronchial Asthma and this state should be compensated by the appropriate medication that Jara has already started to take.
“Yes, I can confirm really good results of Jara´s performance tests and I am very happy, because Jara is exactly in such a condition that we planned to be. I am not going to give the details about the test, but I can briefly affirm an exceptional aerobic performance, perfect regeneration, reserves in the ANP. We also plan to “replace” a little Jara’s body composition, we need to reduce the percentage of muscles in the hands and vice versa to improve the muscle mass of torso and legs, ” explains the results of the load examination his coach Viktor Zapletal.
Jaroslav will train at home in Usti nad Orlici until mid of January and then he will leave for the next two-week training camp in Mallorca probably on January 15th. Jaro will participate in his first race at the end of February in Cyprus, where he will attend the traditional Sunshine Cup as preparation for one of the tops of the season 2015, the famous ABSA Cape Epic stage race.
