SAID AOUITA, the world 1,500 metres record-holder, has pulled out of tomorrow's grand prix meeting in Stockholm on doctor's orders. The Moroccan, who was to have run in the mile, was suffering from flu symptoms, his doctor, David Caborn, told the organisers. 'I am not only concerned that this illness could affect his performance, but that it could also lead to a heart muscle inflammation,' Caborn said.
