DAEGU: Olympic decathlon champion Bryan Clay has withdrawn from the world athletics championships with a knee injury.
“I feel that I would be at less than my best,” he said. “I want to win medals every time I compete and based on the way my knee has been, I feel that I wouldn’t be at top form.”
Clay fell in the decathlon 110 metres at the US world trials in June and withdrew from the competition. He later developed tendonitis in his right knee.
