Interview with Jillian Camarena - Trackshark.com
1. As the top performer in the shot put heading into the U.S. Team Trials with your mark of 61-08.50 (18.81m) set last season, how do you feel after not competing this season and has your training been solid with the meet quickly approaching?
Unfortunately this year, not competing was not really my decision. Just after the indoor season I suffered a herniated disc in my L4-L5, which required surgery at the beginning of April followed by lots of recovery time. During the two months of rest and rehab I was able to continue limited training and tried to maintain the gains I had during my fall training and the indoor season. So my season has not gone as planed, but I am ready for trials and plan to compete the best I can.
