Really, it took 2+ months to realize and diagnose an injury that affects a planned race that is about a month away?  Not unlike how Radcliffe not just walked around but trained for months with a spinal stress fracture?  “Taking the money” is not the issue, it is disingenuousness.  People like to knock Khannouchi for what they perceive as his money-chasing ways, but I give him credit that at least he is up-front and does not do stuff like accept a team spot only to relinquish it under the guise of injury or run the selection race that is in his backyard and take prize money only to then turn down the opportunity to represent his country in international competition that came with it over alleged fears about travel or disease.
