Burrell Out for Season

BRUSSELS, Belgium ) -- Leroy Burrell, who set a new 100-meter record only last month, will miss the rest of the season because of a foot injury, a track official has said.


Burrell withdrew from Friday's Van Damme Memorial meeting and returned to the United States after finishing a disappointing seventh at the Weltklasse Golden Four meeting in Zurich Wednesday.


"You won't see him again this season," meet organizer Wilfried Meert said Thursday after talks with Burrell's manager Joe Douglas. Burrell set a world record of 9.85 seconds in Lausanne, Switzerland.
