Jordan Hasay withdraws from Boston Marathon

Jordan Hasay withdraws from Boston Marathon

Jordan Hasay has withdrawn from the Boston Marathon due to a stress reaction in her heel.

Among the thousands of racers who will lace up their sneakers on Monday, marking five years since the terrorist bombing, Shalane Flanagan is one to watch out for. "I wish my fellow competitors and everyone taking part the very best of luck and I look forward to toeing the line with them next year and for many years after that".

"Her doctor and team have made the decision that Jordan needs to take time to recover fully so there is no long-term injury", the statement said, adding that officials support Hasay's decision and invite her to return to Boston in 2019.

PM's statement prior to his departure to Sweden and UK
India and Sweden will jointly organize the India-Nordic Summit in Stockholm on April 17, which will be attended by the PM. Our partnership is based on democratic values and commitment to an open, inclusive and rule-based global order.

Hasay has been recovering from plantar fasciitis.

Hasay, New York City Marathon victor Shalane Flanagan and fellow Americans Desiree Linden and Molly Huddle had been expected to challenge Kenyan defending champion Edna Kiplagat to end the nation's 33-year wait for a home victor in the women's race.

Hasay's late withdrawal from Boston is a bummer, as she was one of the favorites to end the American women's 33-year title drought. We asked her specifically whether she thought the foot would be a factor on race day and she said, "No, I'll be okay" - though that is before she knew the results of the MRI. Hasay, who is part of the Nike Oregon Project, finished in third place past year. "I've also seen the impact generosity can have and because I believe so much in the work FamilyAid Boston does, I am doing everything I can to not only cross the finish line on April 16 but to spread awareness about this important cause".
