Sommer Lecky Withdraws from Birmingham 2022
29 July 2022
Athletics NI is saddened to share the news that Sommer Lecky has made the decision to withdraw from the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, due to a recent knee injury.
The decision was made with the assistance of the CGNI medical team and Sommer’s coach, Niall Wilkinson to withdraw from the Games and recover, in order to focus on getting injury free ahead of the winter.
Performance Lead, Tom Reynolds, stated: “Sommer and her coach Niall have been working week in week out this season to ensure Sommer was ready to peak at the Games. It is very sad and unlucky that a late injury will keep Sommer from competing in her second senior Games. We wish her well with her recovery and we have no doubt she will be back competing on the big stage very soon.”
