David Darrell, the Bermuda middle-distance runner, had to be taken to hospital with a hip injury after pulling up in the 800 metres preliminaries on Tuesday at the Junior Commonwealth Games in Samoa.

“After visiting the hospital it was determined that he either tore his hip flexor or pulled it very badly,” Cal Simons, the chef de mission of the Bermuda team, said.

“He has to go back to the hospital this morning to have an ultra sound.”

Meanwhile, in the women’s shot put final, Tiara DeRosa placed eleventh with a throw of 11.63 metres yesterday. She finished fifth in the discus final on Tuesday.

The closing ceremony for the Games is tonight and the Bermuda team will return home this weekend.

Australia topped the medals table with 42 medals, including 17 gold while England won 31 medals (seven gold) while South Africa landed 26 medals, including ten gold.
