Jordan Hasay has withdrawn from the Boston Marathon due to a stress reaction in her heel. According to the race management, Hasay had an MRI today that revealed the injury.

"It is with deep regret that I have to withdraw from tomorrow's Boston Marathon," Hasay said in a statement through her race management. "Despite my team working around the clock to give me every chance to make the starting line, on this occasion it will not be possible. I wish my fellow competitors and everyone taking part the very best of luck and I look forward to toeing the line with them next year and for many years after that."

The 26-year-old's build-up to the Beantown race was not perfect, as she withdrew from the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships with a sore foot, though she told us at the press conference that her foot was "doing great" and feeling "100 percent."

Hasay's late withdrawal from Boston is a bummer, as she was one of the favorites to end the American women's 33-year title drought. It was here that she made her stunning debut at the distance one year ago, placing third overall and breaking the American debut record by three minutes in 2:23:00. In fall, she made it two-for-two in A+ marathon runs with a third-place, 2:20:57 effort in Chicago—the second-fastest time ever recorded by an American woman.



Boston Marathon's full statement:

"Unfortunately, Jordan Hasay has to withdraw from running Boston tomorrow. After recovering from plantar fasciitis, and running pain-free the past few weeks, her team wanted to ensure she was ready to go and scheduled an MRI today. The results showed a stress reaction in the heel and her doctor and team have made the decision that Jordan needs to take time to recover fully so there is no long-term injury. We support that decision and have invited Jordan to return to Boston next year."

In a year in which the NCAA indoor, outdoor and cross country championships have been canceled due to COVID-19, it’s safe to say that a mid-October invitational cross country meet has never been more anticipated than Saturday’s OSU Invitational in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Which Of The 2020 World Records Is Best?

Joshua Cheptegei, Mondo Duplantis

For a year in which both the world indoor championships and the Olympic Games were postponed, 2020 has seen its fair share of world records. (Of course, one could argue that those events being postponed aided in world record achievement, particularly in the cases of Joshua Cheptegei and Letesenbet Gidey.) A season with so much history has begged a question: which among these world records is the best?
