MOSCOW: Russian pole vault star Yelena Isinbayeva will miss the remainder of the indoor season after tearing a muscle in her left leg at the weekend, her coach Yevgeny Trofimov said on Monday. “Yelena (Isinbayeva) underwent medical testing after suffering the injury,” the Allsport agency quoted Trofimov as saying. “Her exact diagnosis is a rupture of the soleus muscle.” “The medics have put her left leg in a plaster cast. Now it’s obvious that she will have to miss the remainder of the indoor season.” Following the injury, Isinbayeva on Saturday was forced to put on hold her intended return to competition after a break of more than two years. The 33-year-old had been planning to participate in the Volgograd Governor’s Cup meet this weekend but withdrew after she felt pain in her leg while jogging.
