Meadows heads for Glasgow's Super8

ATHLETICS: World Indoor 800m silver medallist Jenny Meadows has confirmed she will compete in this summer's Super8 competition in Glasgow.

Meadows, who won World Championship bronze in Berlin last year, will captain the Manchester team at Scotstoun on 7 July. The 29-year-old will again compete in the 400m after finishing second behind Victoria Barr in last year's Super8 fixture in Cardiff.

"I can't wait for this year's Super8 competition and will use the 400m opportunity to hone my preparations for the rest of the summer," she said. "By then the European Championships will be just three weeks away, and the chance to take in a high-quality competition in the UK over one lap is great timing and I'm looking forward to a quality race – perhaps against some local opposition."
