Radcliffe Out Of World Half Championships
Still plans to run New York City Marathon.
Marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe of the UK has withdrawn from the 2009 world half marathon championships due to a case of tonsilitis. She said that she still plans to run at the ING New York City Marathon in November.
This is just another in a long line of illnesses and injuries to keep the Brit from competing at a major championship. Just this year she was held out of the Berlin world championships due to surgery on a bunion.
