chris estwanik may 24 2011The defending Bermuda Day Half Marathon male Champion Chris Estwanik will not defend his title due to injury.

The injury came while he was training run on Saturday; he felt a pop in the knee and immediately stopped running due to the severe pain.

Mr Estwanik — who has won the race for the last few years — said, “Everyone looks to break and set records, but the one thing everyone has to remember is one’s health. No one is ever happy with injuries but it is a part of sports and you have to live with these sorts of things.”

“I will now get a chance to see the Derby from a different stand point as a spectator,” continued Mr Estwanik.

“No one feel more disappointed than me at this time because I feel as if I am letting down those who have supported me throughout my time in Bermuda.”

Mr Estwanik concluded, “I am slowly coming to grips with the fact that I will not be in the field, as I will not be 100%, so I will be out there cheering on Ashley and the hundreds of runners making their way to the finish line.”
