BIRMINGHAM (GBR): Greg Rutherford's participation at the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham is in the balance after a below-par performance in Glasgow where he was fourth with 7.89m, informs Sky Sports. "It doesn't look good at the moment to be totally honest. As I've always said, I'm not there to make up the numbers and I'm there to win medals. Jumping like that, maybe I might catch an 8m or so, but I don't feel like that's good enough and that's insulting to the other long jumpers if I'm going in there claiming that I can go out there and win it. I have got to see how I pull up after this. I have got to be honest, after last week I still felt absolutely awful after trials. My body was really struggling and that's just the workload," he said. Rutherford had already ruled himself out of the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast in April.
