The 38-year-old Paula Radcliffe, who still holds women's marathon world record , has suffered a foot injury and 
has made a decision to withdraw from the women's marathon race in London Olympic games.

Runner has been suffering with a degenerative joint problem since the end of June, but had hoped it would recover in time for the Olympic Marathon next Sunday.

Radcliffe added in an interview to "However hard today is, finally closing the door on that [Olympic] dream, at least I can know that I truly have tried absolutely everything"
Freya Murray from Scotland will replace Radcliffe in the event. The 28-year-old athlete admitted that she was staying fit and healthy since she was a reserve athlete for the women's marathon team.
