World marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe admitted on Wednesday that she may never take part in a competitive race again because of ongoing complications with her foot injury.

Radcliffe, who set the women’s world record with a time of 2:15.25 during the 2003 London Marathon, was forced to pull out of the 2012 London Olympics shortly before the start after specialist treatment in Germany failed to cure the problem.

The 39-year-old underwent surgery in August 2012 and still retained hopes of participating in a 10-kilometre race, as well as the 2014 London Marathon, but now, with her injury problems persisting, she concedes she may never be able to return to the sport.AFP
