Tennis Star Martina Navratilova Forced To Back Out Of Charity Climb

Filed under: FitnessCharityTennis

Poor Martina!

Tennis champ Martina Navratilova was forced to pull out of her bid to climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro after she was hospitalized for high altitude pulmonary oedema.

Navratilova was part of a 27-strong team, who planned on climbing the mountain to raise funds for the Laureus World Sports Academy, which uses sports to help with positive social change.

Unfortunately, four days into her journey, she fell ill and was hospitalized at Nairobi Hospital in Kenya after fluid was found in her lungs.

Navratilova is said to be saddened that she will be unable to finish the journey. She continued:

"I'm disappointed not to be able to complete this amazing journey. It was something that I have wanted to do for so long, but it was not to be. I am so pleased that we got it going and I will be watching and waiting for news from the climb when they reach the summit."

It must feel terrible to have to end her quest early, especially since it's for charity. We wish her the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
