Bad News for Melissa Duncan Ahead of the Olympic Games

1500m runner Melissa Duncan will miss three months of preparation before the Rio Olympic Games later this year.

“Unfortunately, I’ve been told I have a fracture and torn ligament underneath my foot,” she posted on Instagram on Thursday.

“Not the greatest news a few months out from the Olympics.”

Upon returning to running, it is expected that Duncan will have a mere three weeks preparation before her race on the 12th of August.
