Amos out of Moscow: Will we see two Americans on the podium for the 800m? #Moscow2013.

2012 Olympic 800-meter silver medalist Nijel Amos has withdrawn from competition at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow due to a nagging quad injury from earlier in the season. On July 19, Amos won a gold medal at the World University Games' 800-meter run. His winning time of 1:46.53 is far from his personal best of 1:41.73, which is tied for the third in all-time history with Lord Sebastian Coe. The personal best comes from the Olympic final, where David Rudisha broke his own world record in London. With Rudisha not competing due to a knee injury, the competition in Moscow will be without the Olympic gold and silver medalists. Following Amos' news, Nick Symmonds put out the following tweet.
