France’s most decorated athlete Marie-Jose Perec has confirmed that she has started training for the first time in a decade to compete in next month’s New York marathon.

The 45-year-old, who won gold in the 400m at the 1992 Barcelona Games and both the 200m and 400m titles four years later in Atlanta, will run the event for charity. The triple Olympic and two-time world champion admitted that she had “done absolutely nothing” since retiring and it had been hard to get back training for the race on November 3.AFP
