Injury delays Darren Scott comeback after record-setting indoors
When last we heard — in mid-March — Darren Scott
was wrapping up a sensational indoor season of world records, including an M40 WR of 21.71 and 49.35 for the 4 (and also a 300 in 34.95). Then silence. And for good reason. He was injured. Yesterday, the Scottish superstar wrote that after his indoor season, “I went away warm weather training in Spain in April. I was running so well — then I got injured. Damaged my Achilles, so been out of action for six weeks.” Darren says he resumed training on May 17, “not done much, but had a couple of races to see where I am at the moment.” He’s run the 100 in 11.09 (with a 0.1 mps aiding wind) and 200 in 21.93 (wind +1.2). “So (I’m) fairly happy with that, just gone back into training, and getting myself ready for the Europeans in Hungary.” What might he do at the Eurovets championships? “We be looking to run sub 11 and 21.6,” he writes. Stay tuned!
