Injured world speedway champion Gollob says career is over

WARSAW, Poland — Motorcycle speedway racer Tomasz Gollob says his career is over following an accident in April that left him paralyzed from the chest down.

The 46-year-old Polish racer, sitting in a wheelchair, met with reporters Wednesday at a hospital in his hometown of Bydgoszcz.

He says "the thing that has happened has shut my chances for competing in any sport. That's history now."

Gollob, the 2010 speedway world champion, lost feeling from the chest down when he was injured on April 23 while training for the domestic championship in Poland.
