Track and Field News Wire
LONDON – Maurice Greene pulled out of Friday’s Crystal Palace Grand Prix meet with a hamstring injury.
The former Olympic and three-time world 100-meter champion withdrew Thursday, citing a recurrence of the injury he sustained in the 100 final at the U.S. nationals last month.
Greene will be replaced in the London meet by John Capel, who will run both the 100 and 200. Capel is the world 200-meter champion.
The 100 will feature Olympic champion Justin Gatlin and world-record holder Asafa Powell.
