LONDON — Beijing Olympic Games 400m hurdles bronze medallist Tasha Danvers says she is disappointed with missing the World Championships, but insisted it is only for the best.
Danvers injured her right hamstring a month ago and was hoping to recover in time to compete in Berlin.
But after consulting with UKA chief medical officer Dr Paul Dijkstra, the hurdler admitted that she would not have sufficient time to complete her rehabilitation and then prepare fully for the championships.
"Of course I am disappointed that I will be unable to compete in Berlin this summer, but I have simply ran out of time in order to be ready," Danvers was quoted as saying.
"The most important thing for me right now is getting back to full health again and come back stronger for 2010 and beyond," she added.
