Trewan suing PWT

Aussie elite runner Cassie Trewan is sueing the PWT for 42,000 EURO after injuring her back landing on a crash mat in a Leibnitz sprint race in 2000. Trewan was not alone in injuring herself on this mat, Jamie Stevenson was forced to retire after twisting his ankle on the landing.

This lawsuit raises a worrying issue, if competitors make a habit of such large claims event entry fees will be forced to rise to cover extra insurance costs.
