Athletics: Hasay out of Boston Marathon with heel injury

According to a statement from Boston Marathon officials that was included in Hasay's tweet, an MRI conducted Sunday showed a stress reaction in the heel of her foot. "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".

Reigning Chicago Marathon champion Galen Rupp and a host of top USA women's contenders could produce the first American title sweep in 35 years at Monday's (today's) 122nd Boston Marathon.

22 locals from Las Vegas have made their way to the Northeast to run the Boston Marathon, in honor of those who lost their lives too soon. Hasay's doctors and team chose to withdraw from the marathon to continue her recovery.

Hasay, an Arroyo Grande native and Mission Prep graduate, had been running pain-free in recent weeks and recovered from plantar fasciitis.

Huddle has been a success at shorter distances, although her only marathon result was a third-place finish at NY in 2016.Flanagan, 36, missed last year's race with an injury but won at NY with extra rest.

After sitting out the past two Boston Marathons (due to the Olympics in 2016 and an injury last year), the Nike athlete has high hopes for Monday's race.

A wreath was laid at the finish line of the Boston Marathon this Sunday morning to mark the anniversary of the deadly bombing five years ago. We asked her specifically whether she thought the foot would be a factor on race day and she said, "No, I'll be okay" - though that is before she knew the results of the MRI.
