Paul Pollock Withdraws from Birmingham 2022
27 July 2022
Athletics NI is saddened to share the news that Paul Pollock has made the decision to withdraw from the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, due to a recent injury.
The decision, made with the assistance of the CGNI medical team and Paul’s coach, Andy Hobdell, will be for Paul to rest and recover ahead of the Autumn Marathon season.
Performance Lead, Tom Reynolds, reflected: “This new injury is so disappointing for Paul and his support team. A two time Olympian who had a recent impressive victory at the Belfast Marathon, Paul had put himself in a strong position to challenge for a top 8 position in Birmingham. We respect and appreciate the input from the CGNI medical team and agree that the decision to withdraw is in Paul’s best interests. We wish him well in his recovery”
