Jodie Henry pulls out of Beijing Olympics

BRISBANE: Swimmer Jodie Henry, who set a world record while winning gold in the 100m freestyle at the Athens Olympics, won’t defend her title in Beijing due to an injury.

The 24-year-old Henry, who set the 100m record at the Athens Games, said on Friday a muscle imbalance in her pelvic region forced her to withdraw from the Australian championships from March 22-29 in Sydney, which are doubling this year as the Olympic trials.

“It has been a very hard decision to make as the Olympics is every swimmer’s goal,” said Henry, who also led Australia to gold medals at Athens in 4x100-meter freestyle and medley relays. — AP
