O’Sullivan withdraws from Games

It seems Sonia O’Sullivan managed to get herself fast tracked for dual nationality in time to compete for Australia in the Commonwealth Games. However she’s had to withdraw from Saturday’s 5000 metre final after sustaining a hamstring injury. The original loophole will be closed after this games.

    Hmm.. well, Sonia wasn’t exactly in the best form of her career anyway, and the fast-tracking caused justifiable ripples among the Australian athletes.

    Withdrawing due to a sudden injury seems a convenient way of stepping out of the glare of any further controversy.
