Charlie Grice: Briton ruled out of European Indoor Championships with injury
British middle-distance runner Charlie Grice has been forced to pull out of the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow because of a foot injury.
Grice, 25, who finished fifth in the 1,500m at the 2015 European Indoors, said on social media he had "busted" his plantar fascia tendon.
The Englishman - named in a 48-strong British squad for the 2019 event - was set to compete in the 3,000m.
He will be replaced by 25-year-old Sam Atkin.
Grice won 3,000m silver at the British Indoors to seal his place in Glasgow and ran an indoor 1,500m personal best at the Birmingham Grand Prix last weekend.
The championships run from 1-3 March and will be broadcast live on the BBC.
