Berlin: World 100m record-holder Tim Montgomery has gone back to the US after a series of frustrating results in Europe.
Organisers of Sunday’s Berlin Golden League meeting said Montgomery had informed them that he had gone home and would not enter the event.
Florian Schwarthoff, head of sports for the Berlin meeting, said Montgomery had told him that he had gone straight back to the United States after his disappointing performance at Friday’s London Grand Prix. The American sprinter failed to make the final at Crystal Palace after having finished sixth in Stockholm on Tuesday in a time of 10.37.
“He told me he was too disappointed with his form to come to Berlin,” Schwarthoff said. “He has gone back to the US.”
