Britain’s most important triple jumper Phillips Idowu has pulled out of the Olympic athletics trials in Birmingham. The 33-year-old injured himself on his last look – at a Diamond League event in Oregon on 2 June.
UK Athletics head coach Charles van Commenee, who declined to make clear the nature of Idowu’s injury, said: “It’s not a worry. He is selectable.” Idowu has battled just three times this year and will have to rely on a optional place on the team. In Oregon, the previous world champion managed jumps of 16.43 metres and 17.05m, before injuring himself when he fouled with his third attempt.
