Weyermann makes easy comeback

Anita Weyermann making her comeback after an elbow injury


Berne-born Anita Weyermann is back. Switzerland's biggest hope for women's athletics has made a successful comeback on home turf, less than two months after breaking her elbow.

In the semi-finals of the Swiss Clubs Championship in her native city, Weyermann won two races. She raced to victory in the 800 metres with a time of 2:15.67. "That went much better than I had expected," she said after the race.

Weyermann, who clinched the bronze medal in the 1,500 metres at the European Championships, went on to win the 3,000 metres race at Saturday's competition as well. Her winning time of 9:33.33 assured her club, GG Bern, the maximum number of points possible for a second time running.

Weyermann injured her elbow at the beginning of April.
