Pollack faces surgery

T-Mobile's Olaf Pollack faces pelvic surgery. Examinations at the Virchow Clinic in Berlin showed that undersized or twisted arteries in his pelvis and the resulting circulation problems are responsible for the muscle problems in his legs that have plagued him for months. "Together with my directeur sportif and the doctors I will decide by the end of the week, whether it will be done immediately or at the end of the season," said the 31 year-old sprinter.
