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.
