Possible Terrorism Threat Will Keep Hasay Home

Jordan Hasay was dreading the needles.The six immunization shots were probably the peskiest prerequisite to the Mission College Prep sophomore running phenom's trip to the IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Mombasa, Kenya, scheduled for later this month.

But it's the 15-year-old's dream to compete internationally. She bared her teeth and took them. Three one day and three more on another. Thursday, Hasay said, it was for nothing. She backed out of the March 24 event after perceived terrorist threats against the championships were revealed by the U.S. Embassy.
