London, March 7 (Xinhua) World record holder Paula Radcliffe is out of next month’s London Marathon due to a toe injury, organisers said Thursday. Radcliffe, who has won the race three times, injured a tendon while training in New Mexico.

“I am disappointed that I have to pull out of this year’s race,” Radcliffe said in a statement.

Radcliffe said the injury was minor and would not damage her chances in the Beijing Olympics in August.

The London race is scheduled on April 13 this year.
