More responsive ion-refresh

I have used ion-refresher in my project:

  <ion-refresher (ionRefresh)="doRefresh($event)">
      pullingText="Pull to refresh" 

when pulling for refresh… the app does not respond for any other actions… until the refresh task is ended…for example, if the user wants to cancel the action by pushing the page up again…that doesn’t happen

is there a way to work around this??
