MOSCOW, Sept 29, 2014 (AFP) -
Russian pole vault star Yelena Isinbayeva has said she has her sights set firmly on bagging a third Olympic gold medal at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.
The 32-year-old, who gave birth to daughter Eva in Monaco in June, won golds at Athens in 2004 and Beijing four years later in a sport she has dominated.
“My coach Yevgeny Trofimov has already scheduled my working plan ahead of the start of the Games in Rio,” Isinbayeva told the Russian athletics federation.
“I want to win my third Olympic gold medal very much and I'll do everything I can to achieve it.” Isinbayeva added: “Together with my husband we have decided to return to my home town of Volgograd pretty soon.
“And I hope to restart my regular training shortly after my return home.” Isinbayeva has set 28 world records during her career.
She took a year out following her failure at the indoor world championships in Doha in 2010.
Isinbayeva returned to competition in February 2011, promptly winning a fourth world indoor title in Istanbul before taking bronze at the 2012 London Olympics and then going on to claim a third world outdoor gold in Moscow in 2013.
