Jelimo says everything is going as planned

Kenyan golden girl Pamela Jelimo said she was not worried about the slow start to her 2009 season and insists things will only get better

Kenyan golden girl Pamela Jelimo said she was not worried about the slow start to her 2009 season and insists things will only get better from here on.

After dominating the women’s 800 meters last season, where she raced unbeaten for 12 consecutive races, the Olympic champion struggled in her first two openers this season.

Jelimo finished down the track in Rabat and Oregon, before delivering her first sub-two minutes clocking this year with a 1:59.59 winning effort at Saturday’s KBC meeting in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium.

Despite the many concerns following her first two race, the 19-year-old said everything is under control.

“To many, I was running badly, but to me it was just a normal training exercise. I took the results positively because I was just coming into competitive action,” she said.

“My preparations have started late this year. I was so tired after the long 2008 season,” the 2008 Kenya sportswoman of the year said in an interview on Tuesday.”
