Golf-Leishman pulls out of Rio in another blow to Australia (Reuters)
Marc Leishman will not compete at the Rio Olympics golf tournament in another blow to Australia’s medal hopes following Adam Scott’s decision to skip the Games. Leishman, who would have represented Australia along with world number one Jason Day, withdrew citing the mosquito-borne Zika virus and health concerns for his wife. The 32-year-old’s wife Audrey suffered toxic shock syndrome, a potentially fatal illness caused by bacterial infection, last year and she was still recovering, Leishman said.
