Bailey-Cole ... It is with bitter emotions that I am announcing that my season has come to an end. I will not be competing at the World Championships.

Sprinter, Kemar Bailey-Cole, has announced he will not be able to compete at the 2015 IAAF World Championships in China because of injury.

In a post on his Facebook page last Saturday evening, the athlete also said he was calling it quits for the season.

"It is with bitter emotions that I am announcing that my season has come to an end. I will not be competing at the World Championships", read the post.

Bailey-Cole explained: This is so as an ongoing cramp to both hamstrings at the London Anniversary Games has led to one of them being torn yesterday in practise.

The Jamaican was named to the national team now in Japan for training, after finishing third in the 100m finals at the local trials in June.

He was also expected to feature in the 4x100m squad.

Nesta Carter who was fourth in the 100m at the national trials is expected to replace Bailey Cole in the 4x100m relay.

The World Championships are scheduled to get underway in Beijing on August 22.
