Jack Haig excluded from Australian Olympics squad due to Tour de France accident – .


Jack Haig has been forced to withdraw from the Australian squad for the Tokyo Olympics as Bahraini runner Victorious faces a longer-than-expected recovery from the broken collarbone he sustained during a fall during stage 3 of the Tour de France.

The 25-year-old Australian had hoped to recover in time for the 234-kilometer men’s road race on July 24, which tackles 4,865 meters of elevation gain on a course that includes the outer slopes of Mount Fuji. However, another rider will now be selected to represent the nation alongside Richie Porte – who was on the Tour de France podium last year – two-time time trial world champion Rohan Dennis and Lucas Hamilton, both that his injury at the Tour de France won’t. It also doesn’t turn out to be a problem.
