Former triathlon world champion Helen Jenkins is ruled out of the Commonwealth Games through injury.

Team Wales have confirmed that former triathlon world champion Helen Jenkins has been ruled out of this summer's Commonwealth Games through injury.

Jenkins, 30, pulled out of the latest leg of the ITU World Series in Hamburg on Sunday with a foot injury.

"I'm obviously devastated. I was very proud to be selected to represent Wales and was looking forward to racing on a tough, honest triathlon course in Strathclyde," Jenkins said in a statement.

"I will get more information from the specialist this week but with a grade two tear of my Planter Fascia, it's almost certain that I won't be racing again this season."

England's Jodie Stimpson is now the favourite for the Commonwealth Games triathlon, which takes place on July 24.
