Cape Town - South Africa's Irvette van Zyl has been withdrawn from the women’s marathon scheduled for Sunday, August 14.

She has had to be placed in a moon boot and is now using crutches.

She is effectively ruled out of participation in her event.

The race will take place at 14:30 (SA time) on Sunday.
