Bulli runner Ryan Gregson is adamant his London Olympic qualifying campaign is still on course despite an injury setback.
The 21-year-old suffered a small calf tear in training last week, ruling him out of Saturday’s 1500m event at the Sydney Track Classic.
The scare came after Gregson pulled up with tight muscles following an 800m event in Hobart where he finished third, despite having his heel clipped and stumbling during the race.
As a result, Gregson will be denied his first major chance to meet the London Games qualifying mark of 3.35.50min at the Sydney Olympic Park athletics track on Saturday.
