MICHAEL JOHNSON, of the United States, the world 200 metres champion who was eliminated in the Olympic semi- finals when he had a virus, will not run again this season, he said yesterday.

MANUELA DERR, a team-mate of the disgraced double world sprint champion, Katrin Krabbe, has also admitted taking the banned drug Clenbuterol. Krabbe and another team-mate, Grit Breuer, were suspended on August 14 after random drug tests showed they had taken Clenbuterol.
