Another Swedish athlete may miss Olympics

Yet another Swedish top athlete may be missing the London Olympics. Swedish Radio Sports says hurdler Susanna Kallur is suffering from leg pains, apparently the result of too much weight training.

Kallur won the gold medal in the 100 meter hurdles at the 2006 European athletics championships and holds the world record for the 60 meter hurdles.

Last week Swedish triple jumper Christian Olsson announced he would not be making the trip to London, due to injuries.
