Marlies Gohr Achilles injury?

Postby Martini » Sat Jul 13, 2013 5:11 pm

My memory is that she tore her Achilles from her heel in the middle of her career and then returned. Nothing I could find on the web agrees with this. Does anyone have either actual knowledge or a more extensive web search?

Early in 1981 Göhr had surgery for an Achilles injury - she returned to run 11.09 in June that year - it was the only time that her seasonal best was outside 11.00 during the period 1977-88

As I recall, she had surgery on both legs. She ran 11.30 behind Koch and Wockel in her seasonal debut and said "things looked grim", but her form picked up and she re-established herself as the top GDR 100 sprinter. Her recovery went very well because from 82 on she was better than ever, and seemed free from injury problems until 86.

She was also injured before 1984 indoor season.
