Ankle injury keeps Edwards out of Dortmund meet

Ankle injury keeps Edwards out of Dortmund meet
One of the stars of Friday's international indoor meeting in Dortmund will be on the missing list.

World record-holder (outdoors) triple-jumper Jonathan Edwards (GBR) has had to withdraw from the Dortmund meeting, following an ankle injury sustained in a competition in Norway last weekend. Edwards, who took silver both in Atlanta and in last year's IAAF World Championships jumped a personal best indoors of 17.26 in Stanger, Norway, but will now be receiving treatment and resting for several days. He hopes to participate in a meeting in Tampere, Finland, on February 4.
