Eilish McColgan: I’ll make up for lost time in 2012

EILISH McCOLGAN fought back the tears when she watched last year’s world athletics championships with her broken foot in plaster.
But the 21-year-old says she’ll be jumping for joy today when she gets back on the track for the first time since sustaining her nightmare injury last August.
It’s been a long road back for the steeplechase prospect who was crocked during the Diamond League meeting at Crystal Palace – 24 hours before she was due to be named in the GB team for Daegu.
She said: “I was so upset. I was meant to go to the World University Games in China and do the New York Fifth Avenue Mile too.
“Even watching the Worlds was hard but now I can’t wait to get up to the track and get out there beside everyone.”
