Greene run off 'Dancing with the Stars'

Maurice Greene won't be running around the Dancing with the Stars ballroom anymore.

 

The former Olympic-champion sprinter and his professional partner, Cheryl Burke, were eliminated Tuesday from ABC's popular dancing competition. The pair received a total score of 48 out of 60 from judges for their quickstep and paso doble routines Monday. After viewer votes were combined with the judges' scores, the 34-year-old Olympic gold medalist was dismissed.

 

"I had a lot of fun," an upbeat Greene said after being eliminated. "I made a lot of new friends out here. I learned how to dance out here in front of millions of people every night. I had a great time."

 

Greene won gold medals in the 100-meter and 400-meter relay at the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney. He also held the world record in the 100 from 1999 until 2002.

The four remaining celebrity contestants — model-actress Brooke Burke, singer Lance Bass, former NFL star Warren Sapp and Hannah Montana actor Cody Linley — will compete in the semifinals. Linley will rejoin his professional partner, Julianne Hough, who missed two weeks of competition because of surgery to remove her appendix.
