His name disappeared from the start-lists on Saturday. Pascal Martinot-Lagarde will not compete in the French Championships, which are currently taking place in Caen. The 5th of the Tokyo Olympics in the 110m hurdles suffers from angina blanche and is not able to line up with the series, scheduled for 6 p.m.
« I consulted the doctor of the federation. An alignment of the stars operates to prevent me from running, one of which has just finished me off, I have angina blanche. I’m in no condition to ride and I’m very disappointed “, he explained in a video posted on his Instagram account.
PML had clocked 13.55 for his only summer outing, last week in Paris, as he returned from a calf injury suffered in April, and an inflammation of the Achilles tendon, developed in compensation from the first injury, still handicapped him a little.
After the withdrawal of Wilhem Belocian, injured in the left hamstrings, the day before, the French Championships lost a new headliner. If PML, who has priority athlete status for selection at the World Championships in Eugene (July 15-24), will return to the track as soon as he is treated, the Guadeloupean will be absent in Oregon.
