Twice world championship 100 metres bronze medallist Trayvon Bromell will not compete in the upcoming U.S. Olympic trials due to an injury, the sprinter said on Wednesday.

Bromell won the United States qualifying event in 2021 and was a hot favourite at the COVID-delayed Tokyo Games but failed to make the final. He earned redemption with a podium finish at the world championships in Eugene two years ago, after finishing third at the 2015 worlds.

His agent told Citius Mag that Bromell suffered an adductor injury in May in Savona and hoped to be competing again in a few weeks.
