Weir suffers hamstring injury

April 16, 2018


Jamaican sprinter Warren Weir will likely face at least a few weeks on the sidelines, after apparently suffering a Grade Two hamstring tear.

Weir, who competed at the just-concluded Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia, finished seventh in 200m final.

It is unclear if the injury occurred during the event, but the Olympic and World Championships medallist made the announcement through his social media account yesterday.

"Face you make when the MRI say you got a hamstring grade 2 tear. Life just keep giving us lemon that we can't even make juice with ...." Weir, through his official account on Instagram, posted underneath a picture of himself crouching on track following the 200m final at the Commonwealth Games.

It has been a tough few years for Weir since his 2012 Olympics bronze medal and 2013 World Championships silver medal in the 200m.

Weir failed to get beyond the first round at last year's World Championships, missed the Rio 2016 Olympics and failed to make the final at the 2015 World Championships.
