The first American athlete a cyclist his name is Tejay van Garderen has withdrawn from the Olympics because of Zika virus now others are joining him in cancelling their trip to Rio because of Zika.

Steph Curry announced on Monday that he’s taking himself out of consideration for the U.S. Olympic team, citing his recent ankle and knee injuries. He’s only the latest in a lengthening list of athletes who’ve decided they won’t be competing in Rio. Some are also missing the games due to injuries, but many have said they’re not going because they’re worried about the Zika virus or have scheduling concerns.

Here’s a list of those who’ve taken themselves out of the running so far.

Golfers

1. Fijian Vijay Singh (Zika and scheduling)

2. Australian Adam Scott (scheduling)

3. South African Louis Oosthuizen (scheduling)

4. South African Charl Schwartzel (scheduling)

5. Australian Marc Leishman (Zika)

Tennis players

6. Australian Nick Kyrgios (believes the Australian Olympic Committee has treated him unfairly)

7. Austrian Dominic Thiem (didn’t want to give a reason)

8. American John Isner (scheduling)

9. Spanish player Feliciano Lopez (scheduling)

10. Australian Bernard Tomic (scheduling and “personal circumstances”)

It’s worth noting that these five players are all ranked within the top 25 in the world.

Basketball players

11. Steph Curry (recent knee and ankle injuries)

12. Chris Paul (general injuries)

13. Anthony Davis (recent knee surgery)


14. Blake Griffin (quad injury)

Cyclists

15. American Tejay van Garderen (Zika — his wife is pregnant)

Marathoners

16. Kenyan runner Wilson Kipsang (scheduling)

17. Dennis Kimetto (scheduling)



This list will be updated whenever we receive news of another athlete cancelling his or her trip to Rio.
