Formanova is expecting a baby

The Czech Republic's former World champion at 800m (1999 indoor and outdoor) Ludmila Formanova (31 years old) is expecting a baby and so will miss the season 2005.

She was thinking about competing in Helsinki where her coach Jarmila Kratochvilova had in 1983 the best moments of her career at the first IAAF World Championships.

"But I'm happy about the situation. I had many injuries and problems since 2000 and this would be a good break. We wanted a child. But I hope to come back after the birth which is expected at the end of September. I think I can still compete for another two years,“ explained Formanova.
