Chantelle Morrison’s bid for World
Junior Championship glory ended in disappointment on Tuesday with a recurrence
of a hamstring injury.
Morrison, 16, was unable to even
get to the starting line in the girls Under-17 100 metres at Moncton in Canada.
She also had back pains and a slight groin strain. Team manager Liz Smith said:
“The hamstring was not right before she left and she tried to train through it
but it got worse. I think she pushed herself a little too hard in training in
Moncton. On top of that she felt pain in her back and groin so she was forced
to pull out.”
Cayman’s other competitor at the
World Junior Championships is Joseph Suberan who ran in the 200m on Thursday.
