The French delegation loses one of its executives.
World champion in the 800m in London in 2017, Pierre-Ambroise Bosse will not line up at the Eugene Worlds in the United States (July 15-24).
The distance specialist announced Saturday to L'Equipe his package for the American meeting for which he had been selected.
The fault of a pain he has suffered since April and whose origin was detected on Tuesday during a medical examination.
“During the control MRI, we learned that I actually had a partial disinsertion of the right tendon (a quarter of the tendon) of the hamstring (at the insertion with the pelvis), explains the French eighth of the Nancy meeting on Saturday.
The injury above is total disintegration and that meant end of career.
I don't want to risk the end of my career on that.
"It wouldn't make sense"
"I've been thinking with this Damocles sword above my head for a few days.
Today (Editor's note: Saturday), I was not in on it, I was too afraid of hurting myself, he describes.
We made the decision not to do Eugene, it wouldn't have made any sense.
Pierre-Ambroise Bosse now hopes to be restored for the European Championships in Munich (August 15-21).
In his absence in Eugene, France will be able to bet on Benjamin Robert and Gabriel Tual, respectively first and second in the French championships ahead of “PAB”.
Both men achieved their personal best this season.
