HAVANA (AP) -- Cuba's injury-plagued Olympic hurdles champion Dayron Robles says he is considering retirement after he defends his title at the London Games.

The 25-year-old Robles, one of Cuba's most famous athletes, has been bothered by a recurring leg injury that forced him to withdraw from the world indoor championships in Istanbul this weekend.

Robles tells The Associated Press that he wants "to finish the Olympics and retire right then and there." He says he was practically reduced to speed walking the last time he raced because of the leg injury.
