Willis out of 800 metres at nationals

The Olympic silver medallist Nick Willis has withdrawn from the 800 metres this week's national track and field championships in Christchurch.

Willis returned to the United States after last week's international track meet at QUE2 Park to seek treatment in an unknown leg injury, which is said not be a reoccurrence of the hip injury that sidelined him last year.
