Swedish hurdler Kallur not to compete until Olympics start
Swedish Olympic hopeful Susanna Kallur,
who has been battling injury, will not compete before the upcoming Olympic
Games in Beijing, reported dpa.
In a statement posted on the Swedish Athletic Association's website the 100-metre hurdler said she "did not want to take any chances before the Olympic Games."
"This is not an ideal preparation but the wisest decision," Kallur said.
The Swedish hurdler withdrew Tuesday from the DN Galan event in Stockholm, citing muscle pain during the warm-up.
Kallur has only competed twice this season, placing second in the June 1 Golden League event in Berlin and third a week later in Oslo, Norway. dpa lsm jb
