Rafael Nadal Pulls Out… Of Olympics

| Filed under: Rafael NadalTennisOlympics

Rafael Nadal Olympics


This can't be a good sign.

Defending Olympic gold-medal winner, Rafael Nadal, has dropped out of the Olympics because of an "undisclosed fitness problem."

Here's his statement:

"I am not in condition to compete in the London Olympics and therefore will not travel as planned with the Spanish delegation to take part in the games. I have to think about my companions, I can't be selfish and I have to think of what's best for Spanish sport, especially tennis and Spanish players and give fellow sportsmen with better preparation the chance to compete.

"I tried to hurry my preparations and training to the very last minute, but it was not to be."

Such a bummer!

He was even set to be the flag bearer for Spain during the opening ceremony!

We hope you feel better soon, Rafael!
