Rutherford withdraws from Muller Anniversary Games

Greg Rutherford has unfortunately withdrawn from the Muller Anniversary Games this Sunday.

The 2012 Olympic champion said: “After some really excellent training this year, the start to the season has been riddled with a series of troublesome injuries. Most recently, a problem with an ankle ligament.

“As a result, I am absolutely gutted to say that I am unable to compete at the Muller Anniversary Games this weekend – one of the greatest events in our sport. Obviously this isn’t ideal, but I am doing everything I can to give myself the best chance of success at the London 2017 World Championships, thanks as always to the incredible support of the athletics fans in the UK – I hope to do you proud in August!

“Wishing all my fellow competitors the best of luck for this weekend, competing at the anniversary games is an amazing experience. I will be watching and supporting from the stands, and wishing I was out there with you.”
