Olympic and World gold medalist Omar McLeod will not be at World Indoors in Birmingham to defend his men’s 60m hurdles title from Portland.

His agent Claude Bryan explains: “Given the JAAA’s failure to communicate and assist it’s constituent (Mr. Omar McLeod) on a matter pertinent to team selection and representation they would have already known Mr. McLeod was extremely unlikely to be in Birmingham.

“To say he withdrew after team selection is disingenuous at best and does not foster sound athlete/federation relationship. Omar is in great spirits and shape and he is looking forward to the outdoor season and future national representation,” Bryan said.
