Blake won't defend world 100m title in Moscow with Jamaican star facing surgery

Jamaica (Daily Mail): World 100 metres champion Yohan Blake will not be fit to defend his title in Moscow in August, according to reports in Jamaica. Blake, 23, won the 100m title in Daegu, South Korea, two years ago after Usain Bolt was disqualified for a false start and had been selected in the Jamaican team as a wildcard pick despite being unable to compete at the National Championships last week.

The sprinter known as ‘The Beast’, who trains with Bolt in Kingston, was already out of the 200m in Moscow because he could not run in the Jamaican trials, but Blake is now reportedly not fit enough to compete at the World Championships at all.
