Ath­let­ics

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Rugby Union -

Bri­tish Olympic sprinter James Dasaolu has started a pub­lic fundrais­ing at­tempt to raise £25,000 to pay for “vi­tal” surgery that will al­low him to carry on com­pet­ing. The 31-year-old rup­tured an Achilles ten­don on Fri­day and fears his ca­reer will be over if he can­not raise the funds. “This is the big­gest chal­lenge I’ve faced,” he told the BBC. “I have been feel­ing great and fast, but just felt a ‘pop’ in my heel in train­ing and it was heart-wrench­ing to get the di­ag­no­sis.” Ad­vanced tech­niques can more than halve the nor­mal two-year re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion time.
