Her rehabilitation from Achille’s injury is actually keeping on in Munich, under the supervision of famous german specialist Müller-Wohlfahrt, who already’s following many other athletes like Usain Bolt and National Team Soccer of Germany. With the co-operation of portuguese coach Carlos Ávila de Borba regarding physical side, Kiira’s main goal at this moment is fully recovering from her previous injury, in order to avoid future problems, and then going back to Lake Arrowhead later in the spring, to progress on technical programs for new incoming season.
