Wright hoping for the best

Postponement of the Olympic Games could be a blessing in disguise for triathlete Matthew Wright, but he isn’t getting his hopes up too high.

If the Games are pushed back, he is expected to be fully recovered and ready to once again make his Olympic dream a reality. 

Barbados’ top triathlete was on his journey to the Tokyo Games set for July 24 to August 9 when he suffered an injury during a training session where he was based in Cardiff, the United Kingdom on February 10.

“I got a stress fracture in my third metatarsal in my right foot. I was just jogging and I felt a little niggle but I usually have them so I didn’t think it was serious. The next day I had an MRI and it turned out that I had a stress fracture,” he told Sun Sport.
