Olsson to miss indoor season

STOCKHOLM: Olympic triple jump champion Christian Olsson will miss :eek: the European indoor championships in Madrid in March as well as the entire indoor season because of an ankle injury.
There is no reason to take risks by starting to compete indoors during winter when you're not 100 per cent prepared,'' the 24-year-old Swede said in a statement today. Olsson added on his website that he planned to start competing again in June, two months ahead of the world championships in Helsinki. His original plan had been to compete both in the triple jump and high jump indoors. I haven’t forgotten about the high jump but will instead compete in a number of high jump competitions this summer,’’ Olsson said.
