11th hour withdrawal by Marion Jones

Marion Jones will not be running in the women's 100m in Stockholm this evening. Suffering from a soreness in the thigh, she didn't wish to risk aggravating the problem by competing this evening and has scratched from the competition. Jones had seemed in excellent form the previous evening and had run 10.87 in a meeting in Malmö on Monday 3 August
