Deena Kastor injures back; withdraws from Olympics: 'I have run out of options,' she says

June 17, 2012

Deena Kastor’s bid for her fourth Olympic Games took a tumble this week when she withdrew because of back spasms.

"Of course I’m extremely disappointed, but I have run out of options," she said in an interview with the Mammoth Times. "I am still in pain, unable to run or cross train, and so I’m left with no option but to be a spectator at the Olympic Trials."

If there is a single person who put Mammoth on the running map, it is Kastor, who as Deena Drossin was the first elite runner to actually move here, train here and evangelize the town.
