European 800 metres champion Lynsey Sharp is the latest Capital star to cut short her season due to injury.

Out of action with an ankle problem since she competed in Walnut, California, in April while on warm-weather training, Sharp has decided to concentrate on a full recovery rather than rushing back.

The 23-year-old EAC member now finds herself ranked number two in Scotland behind Laura Muir.

Her time of 2:02.63, however, does give her one precious Glasgow 2014 standard.
