Two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva does not plan on competing in 2015, according to comments on her Instagram page.

“I am now fully busy with my daughter and family and doing only light exercises,” was posted on her page in Russian, according to a Reuters translation. “I will start full training no earlier than June 2015.

“The main goal for me is the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.”

Isinbayeva, 32, gave birth to a girl in June after winning the 2013 World Championship over London Olympic champion Jenn Suhr. Her coach told a Russian news agency last week that she would return to training over the next month.

Comments on her Instagram page indicated Isinbayeva is doing light training for the time being.
