Jo Pavey withdraws

Pavey (coach: Gavin Pavey) has sustained a minor foot injury and has had to ease off her required training for three to four weeks – she has decided to withdraw as a precautionary measure to ensure she can resume her schedule in full fitness and may well target a marathon later in the Autumn.

Meanwhile Damen (self coached) will receive treatment on a sports hernia this summer and has also withdrawn to ensure she can regain full fitness ahead of her 2012 build up.
