Mottram pulls up short, but he’s ok…

Nuh-uh, wrong Mottram blogfrica… wink wink…

Can Jamie run like this? ;)Anyway, Craig Mottram – Australian international athlete – will run as planned in the 5000 meters event in the World Athletic Championships that begins in Osaka in just over a week.

Mottram – whilst training for the event in London – stopped shy of finishing a training session, clutching his hamstring, then limped off the training track. Athletics Australia chief executive Danny Corcoran stated that Mottram was fine, and would compete as planned – “…just a scare.”

Mottram heads into this event as one of the favourites, having had only one loss at either 3000 or 5000 meters this season. His last race was a 2 mile event in London earlier this month – which he won.
