One injury too many

Hurdler Jenny Kallur retires

The Swedish hurdler Jenny Kallur has announced she will retire. The 30-year-old athlete has - just like her twin sister Susanna - been plagued by many injuries of late.

"Of course it would have been fun to compete for another couple of seasons, that is what I had counted on and planned for to 100%. But now this is the best for me, and my foot, and I am very satisfied with the decision," Jenny Kallur said in a statement on the Swedish Athletic Association's website.

In 2005, Jenny Kallur achieved a silver in the European indoor championships.
