USA's Hasay pulls out of Boston Marathon

According to the race management, Hasay had an MRI today that revealed the injury.

"It is with deep regret that I have to withdraw from tomorrow's Boston Marathon", the 26-year-old said in a statement. "Despite my team working around the clock to give me every chance to make the starting line, on this occasion it will not be possible".

The 26-year-old's build-up to the Beantown race was not ideal as she withdrew from the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships with a sore foot, though she told us at the press conference that her foot was "doing great" and feeling "100 percent".
