Triple jumper Phillips Idowu's agent has issued a statement today saying that he is "incredibly disappointed" at the British Olympic Association for making a public request to see his medical records. Idowu did not travel to the Team GB training camp in Portugal citing an injury concern.
Idowu's latest problems reportedly relate to a hip injury which forced him to pull out of the Aviva Grand Prix at Crystal Palace 10 days ago. Jonathan Marks told BBC Spot:
He's incredibly disappointed and surprised as to why the BOA has chosen to do this. I can't understand the benefit to the athlete.
We are more than happy to send the BOA the medical records. Phillips is an athlete who's proven that if he gets to the start line then he is one of those athletes who can win a medal.
