Rogers cleared by race referree

Tim Rogers looks set to compete in Saturday's Commonwealth Games triathlon.

Rogers, who broke an arm just 4 weeks ago, looks set to compete in this Saturday's Commonwealth Games triathlon subject to a last minute fitness test. Rogers has been provisionally cleared to race by both the Commonwealth Games medical team and CWG triathlon race referee. Rogers has made a speedy recovery from his injury, and was taken out of his cast on Tuesday. Preparations were being made for Rogers to race in a lightweight cast, however this was deemed not necessary by a leading Australian sports medicine expert. Rogers then met with the race referee, Terry Sheldrake of New Zealand, to discuss what support could be used if necessary.

Gary Jones, Jersey Triathlon Team Manager, said "Everyone is delighted with the outcome. Tim has worked incredibly hard over the last four weeks to remain positive and has been an inspiration to us all. Special tribute must be given to the Games medical team, both from Jersey and Melbourne, who have worked tirelessly to support Tim in pursuing his dream to race in the Commonwealth Games.

The Commonwealth Games Men's Triathlon commence this Saturday 18 March, at 2am GMT
