Yohan Blake's track season cut short again by hamstring injury

For the second year running, Yohan Blake, Jamaica's London 2012 Olympic double sprint silver medalist, has had his season ended by a hamstring injury.

The confirmation came from Blake’s coach Glen Mills on Tuesday.

“Right now he’s on crutches; he had to do an operation a couple days day,” Mills disclosed.

Twenty-four year-old Blake pulled up injured in the 100m on July 11 at the Sainsbury’s Glasgow Grand Prix in London.

“The injury was quite severe and the original prognosis was misdiagnosed and he went Germany and when they had a good (look), they realized that it was more serious and required surgery, so he’ll be out for quite a long time,” Mills told RJR Sports.

This is disappointing news for Blake, who failed to defend his 100m world title in Moscow, Russia in 2013 because of another hamstring injury.
