Klüft to Miss World Champs?

Swedish long jumper Carolina Klüft may be forced to miss the World Athletics Championships in Berlin this summer due to a hamstring injury.

She was carried off the track during an athletics meet in Karlskrona Monday evening, and her trainer says that she has probably strained her hamstring, meaning 6 weeks rehabilitation therapy, with the World Champs starting in Berlin on August 16th.

Klüft dominated the Heptathlon event for years before switching and concentrating on the long jump, where success has been less forthcoming.
