World Athletics: Cynthia Bolingo definitely forfeited for Eugene, a slim hope for the Munich Euro

His package, strongly anticipated after his knee operation in February, was confirmed on Wednesday to the Belga agency by his coach Carole Bam. Qualified for the American meeting thanks to her Belgian record for the 400 meters (50.29) achieved in 2021, the RCABW athlete tore her right knee ligament during the Belgian Indoor Championships in February. Bolingo had to go through the operation box and its inherent revalidation. It is now certain that this injury will make her miss the Outdoor Worlds, she who had already had to give up the Indoor Worlds in Belgrade in mid-March.

This package constitutes a loss for the women’s 4×400 meters relay because the Belgian Cheetahs lose their fastest element.

There remains a slim hope of seeing the 29-year-old from Brussels at the Munich Euro, which begins on August 15 in the Bavarian city. However, this race against the clock also seems very difficult to win for the lap specialist.
