Rudisha out of Doha
NAIROBI (KEN): A calf muscle injury in training forced the Kenyan 800 m star and World record holder David Rudisha to withdraw from the opening leg of the IAAF Diamond League in Doha on . He is so postponing his long-awaited comeback to the track. “I’m very disappointed not to be able to race in Doha . I know I’ve got a lot of fans there and I’m sorry I cannot compete for them,” Rudisha said for agencies. His manager James Templeton added: “He has been training well, progressively getting fitter and stronger these last months and â€Žwas excited about returning to competition in Doha. It’s been on his agenda these last months and he’s been building towards that. However he had a setback last week in training — a strained calf muscle as he was training on the track — that precluded him from competing in the AK meeting in Mumias . It’s not a major injury but he’s been sore and unfortunately doesn’t feel able to risk his comeback by racing in Doha next week,” he said. Agencies are informing.
