Dado won’t defend her New York title

NEW YORK, USA October 15 – Ethiopia’s Firehiwot Dado will not defend her title at next month’s New York Marathon after withdrawing from the race because of an injury, organizers announced on Monday.

Dado had been unable to train for the November 4 race because of an infected heel blister.

The 28-year-old African rallied in the last 10 miles to win her first major marathon title last year in New York.

Dado was fourth at this year’s Boston Marathon in 2:34:56.

Among the entrants for this year’s New York Marathon are reigning world champion Edna Kiplagat of Kenya, London Olympic women’s marathon champion Tiki Gelana of Ethiopia and London bronze medalist Tatyana Arkhipova of Russia.
