Statement from Derek Drouin about withdrawing from the 2017 Canadian Track and Field Championships

I’m really disappointed not to be able to compete on Saturday. I’ve been dealing with a nagging Achilles issue and my doctor decided this morning that it wasn’t in the best interests of my health to compete in Ottawa.  The Canadian Track & Field Championships are a competition that I look forward to every year. We don’t get a whole lot of chances to compete in Canada. There’s not a whole lot of opportunities for my family and friends to watch me. It’s disappointing on a number of levels, but I keep reminding myself that the IAAF World Championships in London is the focus of the season. I’m confident that with this decision, I’ll be ready to defend my world title.
