Symmonds to Sit Out of Trials
It's the news I hoped I wouldn't be reading. Boise native and Bishop Kelly Alum Nick Symmonds will be sitting out for the 2016 Olympic Trials. Due to a lingering left ankle injury, Symmonds announced on his Instagram account he wouldn't be running.
Time is against Symmonds, as he is nearly 10 years older than most of his competitors. The six-time world champion did make clear, though, that this is not a retirement announcement but rather an end to his 2016 season.
