NEWCASTLE (GBR): Despite setting a British record and defending his European title, Greg Rutherford describes his season as "quite frustrating," informs Athletics Weekly. "It's not been a bad year. I set a British indoor record to start off which was quite good. I broke a few stadium records this year, won a European Championships and got an Olympic bronze medal. It's not bad but ultimately we're defined by how we do in the Olympics, so that's why it's ended as quite frustrating. There are always positives. It's great to have won my second European title on the trot. But I was there to win the Olympics this year if nothing else, so it will always be a marginal disappointment," he said. Rutherford has confirmed he will skip the indoor season next year in order to focus on defending his world title on home soil in London.
