Olympic champion Jacobs out of Stockholm 100m after ‘pain’

Olympic champion Marcell Jacobs was a late withdrawal from the 100m at the Stockholm Diamond League on Thursday, the latest blow to his injury-hit season coming just two weeks out from the world championships.

Meet organisers said Jacobs’s team had made the decision to scratch after the sprinter felt “pain” in training.

“After feeling some pain yesterday during the training session and after being under the supervision of his personal medical staff they have taken the decision not to let him take any risk,” organisers said.

The Italian had kicked off the season with world 60m indoor gold in Belgrade.
