    It's interesting to hear that a hamstring tear will take DeGrasse out for 4 to 6 weeks according to his manager.

    My first question might be how did those people left in charge to help him allow this to happen.

    If it's a hamstring tear why would you end your season right now if we have known for more than 30 years such a scenerio takes 10 days?

    Twitter Altis athletes speaking about....

    "I have been working to get mentally stronger" Double speak for my results suck and I am not where I need or want to be.

    #carrytheshield is on Altis twitter main page. I know issues happen but geez. Use that 'shield' NOW. well now is too late. You have to use the shield BEFORE the meet.

    Have they heard of the 10 day taper? LOL. I guess the coaches vision night be blurred by their guaranteed pay check.

    Nothing against guarantees but that's the ugly side of unions isn't it?

    Who is winning here right now? NOT Andre.

    Andre is NOT winning. He is not going to be competing this season? REALLY!

    10 days to recover from a serious hamstring issue?

    The dots are not connecting.

    what do you reckon ange.....politics, a genuine injury or take away the contenders? nothing suprises me in this sport. 1 fact regarding usain is that he has been mr.track and field for the past few years. he fills stadiums, he pleases tv, promoters, sponsers, and so on. its a vicious circle but this is sport at the very highest level

    Well the odds are not very good for DeGRasse. (where are the emoji's when I need them?)

    I guess you mean the odds now that he is out.

    Injuries happen.

    But you have a well supported situation for DeGrasse from sponsor and athlete and you can't make it happen? Who is accountable? Who dropped the ball? What went wrong? Who cares at this point if you are discussing the end of the season. Your job is to get back ASAP. Why would you not want that? Why would anyone coach/ athlete / Country accept that? ho humm?

    ange, hes a puma sponsored athlete so maybe a bit of politics indeed. I'm sure he still has to make $$ after the WC's but the entire injury thing and rest of the season thing is very suspect
