TEHRAN – Iran’s judoka Javad Mahjoub will not be going to the 2012 London Olympic Games due to gastric disease.
Iran’s head of the Sports Medicine Federation, Lotfali Pour-Kazemi, said on Sunday that the 100kg athlete has missed the Olympics due to a gut infection.
“Mahjoub must use antibiotics during 10 days and he cannot compete in the Olympics,” Pour-Kazemi said.

Rudaki suffered an injury in Judo Grand Prix in Russia last month.
