Another tough break for Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, the British sprinting hotness and the former World junior sprinting champion. Harry AA could miss the European Indoor Championships after an injury at the Birmingham Grand Prix, reports the BBC.
The 22-year-old looked to have torn a hamstring when placed sixth in [the 60m] race won by American Mike Rodgers. Fellow Briton Mark Lewis-Francis pulled a groin muscle in the earlier heats. Other GB hopefuls [may] now be required at the event in France.
The British team for the European Indoor Championships in Paris on 4 March will be announced on Tuesday. It is a potentially huge blow for Aikines-Aryeetey, who had looked to have regained his form after a miserable, injury-ravaged 2010. While Rodgers stormed through to win the 60m in 6.50s ahead of former world champion Kim Collins, 34, a despondent Aikines-Aryeetey limped off the track to join Lewis-Francis in the treatment room.
Any volunteers to help with Harry's leg ... injury?
