Today Yuliya Stepanowa competed in the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston.
In an interview some days ago she expressed her hopes not to finish on the last position with a large gap between her and the rest of the field.
After her injury and with limited training facilities together with a German trainer who can only coach her remotely she is still fighting to get back to her former condition. On an indoor event in Albuquerque mid January this year she finished with a time of about 2:10 min.
And today she finished with a fantastic time of 2:05.14 min which is only 3.13 seconds behind the winner Charlene Lipsey (USA).
Congratulations to her for this successful race!
