Doha, 11 September 2019 - French athlete and the European champion, Merhad Amdouni is undergoing intense rehabilitation at Aspetar, Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital, to reach his maximum potential following a hamstring injury he suffered earlier this year.
Amdouni said: “I am happy to be here, happy to be able to benefit from Aspetar facilities... Everything is available here that allows athlete to be in a good shape including heat training, it is important for me as I am running the marathon on October 5th”.
Last year, France’s Morhad Amdouni became the first Frenchman ever to win the European Championships 10,000m title, and a bronze medal at 5,000m in Berlin last year. Far ahead, the 10,000m European champion, who suffered a thigh injury, is forced to change his preparation for the Marthon in the World Championships in Doha.
Answering about his choice for treatment, Amdouni said: “I am here for a preventive reason, Aspetar is famous for injury prevention as well that helps athletes to keep in track and that will help me for my preparation for the upcoming world championship here in Doha.”
The ten-day IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 will take place in the impressive Khalifa International Stadium with the marathon being held against the impressive skyline, along the city’s Corniche, for the first time at midnight.
