In a yet another Nepali Olympian performance, Nepal literally remained out of track. Pramila Rijal who participated in women’s 100m sprint today failed to impress with her performance. She neither set any national records nor did improve her personal records. Overall it was a complete fail for Pramila who completed 100m distance in 13.33 seconds. Her personal best timing till now is of 12.06 seconds.
The reason for disappointing performance however, is sad and considerable. Pramila’s bad performance today had more to do with her back pain. Pramila had back problems since three years and the pain had grown severe since last couple of days. She was on painkillers and was undergoing physiotherapy sessions. She participated in the games regardless of her physician’s approval. Pramila didn’t want to miss the opportunity and thus with few pain killers before the game, gave the best effort she could.
Pramila has been advised six-month rest by her doctor Ranjit Baral. Get well soon!
