Exclamation Henin may skip Olympics because of asthma

I can't picture JH skipping the Olympics but that's just me.

MADRID, Spain - Justin Henin might not defend her Olympic gold medal in Beijing because of concern the city's air pollution will trigger her asthma.

Henin withdrew from the China Open in September because of her asthma and is worried she might be forced to skip the Beijing Games next August.

"I've had asthma for a few months now and I felt very bad in New York at the end of the (U.S. Open), so Beijing, I was really concerned about that," Henin said Monday at the Sony Ericsson Championships. "I was pretty disappointed because I wanted to play the (China Open) and get used to the conditions."

Henin said she has since controlled her asthma with the help of a specialist.

The air quality in Beijing is "a big problem" International Olympic Committee inspection team leader Hein Verbruggen said. His remarks came a week after the United Nations said air pollution was a major concern for athletes' health ahead of the games.

"It's true that Beijing is going to be tough with the Olympic Games with the problem I have, but now it seems that everything is under control, which is important because the Olympic Games remain a very important goal for me in 2008," Henin said.

The Belgian begins her WTA championships defence Tuesday against Anna Chakvetadze of Russia.

I would be very very very surprised if Henin did not show up at the Olympic games.

Re: Henin may skip Olympics because of asthma

she loves tennis too much
lets see if she wins wimbledon if she does she sure as hell is going to try for the golden slam then
i dont see her quitting the olympics at any cost
not when she has a shot at a golden slam

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: Henin may skip Olympics because of asthma

Justine said NOTHING about skipping Olympics in those quotes! Who the hell decided to run with this title?

What's more: "It's true that Beijing is going to be tough with the Olympic Games with the problem I have, but now it seems that everything is under control, which is important because the Olympic Games remain a very important goal for me in 2008," Henin said.

Hablo, why even post it? It's obvious posters here only read the title, and we'll be hearing for a year how Justine may not play Olympics.

I thought too that the article's title didn't quite fit the JH's quotes but decided to post it anyway since TSN is a reputable sports chanel/website.

Re: Henin may skip Olympics because of asthma

I cannot see anywhere in either of those statements where Henin said that she would skip the Olympics

Can someone please show me where Justine says it?

Re: Henin may skip Olympics because of asthma

She does not say she will not play, just that it could be a serious problem for her. Unless she cannot breath at all, Justine will be competing at the Olympics. Still, they never should have awarded the Games to China, especially with their pollution problems.

Re: Henin may skip Olympics because of asthma

Maybe these kinds of articles are just a backhanded way to complain about the pollution in China.
