SHARE SPRINTER BURRELL OUT FOR 6 MONTHS

Better safe than sorry is the philosphy of world 100-meter record-holder Leroy Burrell, who will be sidelined for six months because of a ligament injury in his right foot.

Burrell said he felt pain in the foot during a 100-meter heat in a meet at Zurich, Switzerland, on Wednesday night. He aggravated it during the race final, in which Burrell finished seventh in 10.39 seconds behind winner Linford Christie of Britain.
