Shoulder injury forces TeamGB Olympian Jack Green to withdraw from UK Indoor Championships, ending European Indoor hopes
A shoulder injury has forced Olympic athlete Jack Green out of
this weekend's UK Indoor Championships in Sheffield and ended his
hopes of a place in TeamGB for next month's European Indoor
The 21-year-old Maidstone-born 400m runner suffered a dislocated
shoulder at the Birmingham Grand Prix last Saturday, his first race
of the season, and was forced to withdraw from this
weekend's event at the English Institute of Sport on Thursday
Green (pictured) said: "I have withdrawn from this
weekend's trials after last week's shoulder problems.
"I'm very disappointed to have to withdraw but I'm hoping to run
in Birmingham the following week once I'm 100%."
Green was hoping to secure a new indoor PB over 400m to secure
one of three spots in the team for the Europeans in Gothenburg,
He was also in line for a place in the 4x400m relay team.
The former Brockhill School, Hythe, and Mid-Kent College
student has targeted the 400m at the National Indoor Arena in
Birmingham on February 16 for a comeback.
Kent's Sean Molloy (800m), Shaunagh Brown and Scott Rider (shot
put) and Dina Asher-Smith (60m and 200m) will compete in Sheffield
