Athletics: Injured Tomlinson's indoor season over

British long-jumper Chris Tomlinson's indoor campaign was cut short after he tore his hamstring during an international meet in Glasgow on Saturday.

The 33-year-old's first competitive jump of the season saw him post a distance of 7.61 metres, which was good enough to finish second behind Germany's Julian Howard.

However, former world indoor silver medallist Tomlinson injured himself in the process.

"I basically tore my hamstring from my take-off leg," he said. "It's a great shame really because I was in decent shape but I still finished second.

"But that's the way it goes unfortunately. My indoor season is definitely over now."

Germany won the match with 50 points, one ahead of Britain and France, with a youthful Scotland team finishing further behind on 35 points.
