GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Yohan Blake experienced a setback on his return to full fitness Friday, pulling up during the 100 meters at the Glasgow Grand Prix, stumbling to the track and leaving in a wheelchair.

Having missed much of last season with hamstring troubles, there was no immediate word on the double Olympic silver medalist's condition after fellow Jamaican Nickel Ashmeade won in 9.97 seconds ahead of American sprinter Michael Rodgers.

Blake's fresh discomfort did, however, show the Scottish public just why he had already declared he wouldn't gamble on his fitness by returning to Glasgow later this month for the Commonwealth Games.

The Diamond League meet had been shifted from London to Scotland's national football stadium, Hampden Park while the British capital's Olympic Stadium is overhauled.
