Justin Gatlin to return to training after injury scare

World 100m champion Justin Gatlin remains to defend his name.
Gatlin pulled up hurt whilst competing at Zagreb on Tuesday holding on to his hamstring as he dared to finish fourth in the race at a time of 10.29 secs.
His supervisor Renaldo Nehemiah has stated he will go back to training within a week later tests revealed negative on any harm to the people.
„He explained he started to feel something catching, so that he immediately tried to safeguard against any potential harm occurring,“ Nehemiah said.
Tests to Gatlin’s hamstring“revealed he had 100 per cent power from the leg and also there were no adhesions or something,“ Nehemiah added.
It had been the second time within a week the 37-year-old had slowed in a race whilst leading.
Gatlin, who has the fourth fastest time over 100m this year together with 9.87 secs, finished fourth at the Zurich Diamond League final on August 29. Three days later he returned to form, winning a 100m race at Switzerland in 9.97 seconds.
The sprinter won Olympic gold in Athens but served a four-year ban for doping between 2006 and 2010. He returned to get a medal at the Olympics in 2012 in London then went on to win silver medals in the world championships in 2013 and 2015.
He went in the world championships in London at 2017 with gold in the 100m. This season he will try to defend this title in Doha.
