The latest in the aches, pains & eligibility departments:

James Dasaolu, Britain’s ’14 Euro 100 champ, has successfully crowdfunded the $32,000 he needs to have Achilles surgery.

Healthy again after a serious knee injury in the summer of ’17, U.S. Olympian English Gardner plans to run indoors to test her progress.

No homecourt advantage for Sifan Hassan at the Euro XC Champs; the Dutch star was forced out of the race by illness.

Joyciline Jepkosgei, World Record holder in the half-marathon, twisted her ankle in training and had to withdraw from her planned marathon debut in Honolulu.

An Achilles injury knocked Portugal’s Marta Pen—the ’16 NCAA 1500 champ for Mississippi State—out of the Euro XC.

Former Cuban sprinter Yunier Pérez (10.00 PR) will now represent Spain.

A non-retirement announcement came from Tero Pitkämäki, Finland’s ’07 world javelin champ. Now 35, he says he aims to compete next summer despite all of his injury problems.

Jared Tallent, a 9-time World Ranker in the event, missed the Aussie 50K Walk championships due to injury.

Graduating early, Georgia sprinter Kendal Williams will turn pro and not use his final year of collegiate eligibility.
