MEGAN MARRS SET FOR ANNIVERSARY GAMES DIAMOND LEAGUE EVENT

British Indoor 60m Hurdles Champion Megan Marrs (City of Lisburn AC / Jerzy Maciukiewicz) will follow on from last week’s Athletics World Cup with another high profile competition.

Megan will again swap her City of Lisburn AC vest for that of Great Britain & Northern Ireland as she lines up as part of a world class field at the Muller Anniversary Games, a Diamond League event being held at the London Stadium (Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd July 2018).

The Loughborough based athlete, who came through the Athletics NI Youth Academy system, recorded her second fastest time ever (13.36) last weekend in the same venue and will therefore be looking to further extend her recent personal best of 13.32, set at the Belfast International Meet last month.

Start lists for the event are available HERE.

Elsewhere this weekend…

A team of mountain runners from Northern Ireland will be in action at the Snowdon International Mountain Race in Wales this weekend (Saturday 21st July 2018).

In Tullamore, a host of up and coming talent will compete at Day 3 of the Irish Life AAI National Juvenile Age Group Championships (Sunday 22nd July 2018).  Full information for the event, including start lists and timetable are available HERE.
