Injured Solomon limps out

By Danny Caro, July 29, 2014

There was heartbreak for Australian sprinter Steve Solomon in Glasgow on Tuesday night as he limped out of the 400m semi-finals with what looked like a hamstring injury.

In only his second competitive race since recovering from a similar problem, the Stanford University student made a promising start in semi-final three, but he pulled up suddenly clutching his thigh.

The Australian champion had started the competition well, finishing his heat in 46:26, but he cut a frustrated figure at Hampden Park in a race won by Lalonde Gordon.

Solomon's involvement in the 4x400m now looks doubtful.
