Darya Domracheva recharging her strengthDarya tells us, “Having considered carefully, I’ve decided to miss the 2015/2016 competition season. I first thought about taking a step back to regain my strength at the end of the last Cup season. However, I didn’t listen to my body, which was a mistake. Having gone to the seaside, I realised how tired I was. I thought that I’d rested sufficiently, and began training for the new competitive year, planning only to miss some starts (to reduce the competitive intensity of the season). I started training with great enthusiasm and all seemed to be going well but my body had other ideas. Having consulted with specialists and listened to my gut, I’ve come to the conclusion that missing the season is the most sensible decision. I’m sure that this will benefit me, allowing me to restore strength and become motivated for next year.”

Ms. Domracheva plans to rest completely, avoiding emotional or physical stress. She notes, “Following my doctors’ recommendations, I’m spending the next month calmly and moderately. Later, I’ll begin basic training, of course, when my health allows it. By winter, I plan to start testing my skis and selecting those for next season. I have a wonderful opportunity to spend time on this. I’ll be training according to my individual schedule and, in order to ensure diversity, and keep me interested, I’ll include some non-standard (for me) work with specialists from other sporting areas. I’m viewing this year as a chance for recharging.”
