PARIS (FRA): French Muriel Hurtis-Houairi confirmed, after running 53.65 in an interclub meeting this weekend, she is not excluding the possibility of changing events to the 400m. Hurtis-Houairi has been forced to focus on the longer sprint distances because an ongoing injury prevents her from doing sprint work. Hurtis-Houairi does not change her objective of competing in the 200m at the European championships but, should the injury continue to prevent her to focus on sprint training, she is open to continue her career in the 400m. The French athlete confirmed for athle.com she aims at competing internationally until at least the 2012 Olympic Games.
