Judoka pulls out of Glasgow

6:30 pm on 16 July 2014

New Zealand judoka Patti Grogan has been forced to withdraw from the team for the Commonwealth Games, starting next week.

Grogan has suffered a health issue which has sidelined her in final preparations in the Netherlands, and the 24-year-old hasn't been able to train fully for the last two weeks.

She'll be out of action for at least a further week and after consulting with medical staff, Grogan has decided that she would not be fit enough to compete in Glasgow.
