Bucharest: Olympic champion Gabriela Szabo, who struggled home 11th in Saturday’s world athletic championship 5,000m final in Paris, could have a heart problem.
The 27-year-old double world champion’s husband Zsolt Gyongyossy said Monday she would undergo more intensive tests to see if the problem was life-threatening.
“The first thing we did was an electrocardiogram which revealed a problem,” he said. “I don’t know yet if it’s serious.”
He said Szabo might retire from athletics if the condition proved serious. (AFP)
