She is the fastest woman in Switzerland, but these days Ajla Del Ponte (25) has to take things much more slowly. Expectations aren’t particularly high ahead of their Diamond League start on Saturday in Birmingham. If things go wrong, she’s not quite there at the World Cup.

An inflammation of the thigh tendon put her out of action for a long time, the record sprinter (100 m in 10.90 s) could only train alternatively for weeks and had to call off the indoor season. It’s been running at full speed again for a month, but logically it’s still a long way from being at the top level. Only the basic work has been done. “Now we still have to work on explosiveness and acceleration,” says coach Laurent Meuwly. Also, there are a few things to correct. Due to her injury, Del Ponte changed her movement pattern because she subconsciously spared the injured areas. “Some of it is still a little weird, we’re working on that.”
