Hi, Jelena fans. I saw her yerterday in "Buenavista", the biggest mall in the city. She was with Santiago Giraldo, the 2nd ranked columbian player. She's gorgeous :D I'm going to try to catch her on saturday :D

Well, Alejandro Falla and top columbian players come to Barranquilla 'coz the city is hot all the year (30º C - 35 ª C) and conditions are a lot like like the Australian summer. Colsanitas, a prepaid healthcare organization, is the sponsor of the colombian players. But i'm not sure about the Jelena conexion. That'ssomething i wanted to know too. I know Sanitas is an organization from Europe, but don't know if it's related to Jelena

Thanks for the information. It is rather intriguing as to what exactly is Jelena's connection to all of this :)

JJ's trainer, mr. Sanchez, is also trainer of Falla, so he sugested to JJ to come with him in Colombia, and traing with "home" boys ;)

That's the connection folks... :)

Thanks, alfonsojose. Nice article :)

JustDoIt, try using the google translator. It isn't perfect, but then you can at least understand the article and what Jelena is talking about.

After spending the last two years training in the European winter, the 21-year-old Jankovic decided to head to Colombia to train in the searing heat of South America and the hard work is already paying off.

:yeah:

It's definitely working for her. I remember reading one of her quotes which said if she could cope with the sauna like heat of Colombia, she can handle anything :)
