British athlete Tasha Danvers, an Olympics bronze medallist, has retired because of a sequence of injury problems. Danvers, 34, won bronze in the 400m hurdles at Beijing 2008. She said: “It’s extremely unsatisfactory not to be able to put myself into contention for London 2012 selection.”Based on my training at different stages, my coach and I believed we had a genuine chance of making it. But the setbacks have been too many to overcome.” The London-born athlete has been just sidelined by an Achilles problem and also missed the 2009 World Championships.
Danvers won Commonwealth Games silver in 2006, less than 18 months after giving birth to her son, and has made every final she has contested since 2004. She added: “Since winning Olympic bronze in Beijing, I have made so many sacrifices to fulfil my dream of competing in London. “Making the decision to relocate back to the UK meant exit my seven-year-old son behind in America, which is the hardest thing in the world to do.
