MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. Russian pole vault queen Yelena Isinbayeva is planning to quit sports after setting a new world record at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio-de-Janeiro, she said Thursday.
In sports, I am a panther that will mawl anyone standing in the way Yelena Isinbayeva Athlete
"I would like to set a new world record although the Olympics are unpredictable," Isinbayeva told a news conference announcing her return to the track and field team of CSKA sports club.
" In sports, I am a panther that will mawl anyone standing in the way," the two-time Olympic champion said, adding that 2016 will be the last year in her career. "And after [the games in] Rio I'll say good-bye to everyone," Isinbayeva added.
Isinbayeva, 32, announced a break in her sports career in 2013 saying she wanted to focus on family. Last summer, she gave birth to daughter Eva.
Isinbayeva is also the three-time World Champion (2005, 2007 and 2013) and having set a total of 28 world records, she is currently considered the greatest female pole vault athlete of all time.
