Ohuruogu set for Glasgow comeback

10 August 2007

Christine Ohuruogu will have her first races since returning from a drugs suspension at this weekend's Scottish National Championships in Glasgow.

The 23-year-old, who has just finished a 12-month ban for missing three out-of-competition tests, will compete in the 200 and 400m as a guest.

Earlier this week she was named in the GB squad for this month's World Championships in Osaka.

She will leave for the squad's holding camp in Macau on Sunday.

"I'm delighted to have an opportunity to race in a quality warm-up which will aid my final preparations before leaving for the championships," she told organisers.

Ohuruogu, who trained daily during her suspension, has substituted time trials for competitions, but is keen to get some races under her belt as she seeks to regain her competitive edge prior to Osaka.

She could race for the first time since her ban in the 400m heats on Saturday afternoon.

On Sunday, she is scheduled to run in the 200m heats and, if she qualifies, the final, followed by that of the 400m just 40 minutes later.

In her speciality one-lap race, she could come under pressure from Carey Easton, fourth fastest in the British rankings this summer.

World indoor 400m champion Alleyne Francique will be another guest along with Australia's Collis Birmingham over 1500m, Canadian hammer thrower Sultana Frizzel and Northern Irish pole vaulter Zoe Brown.
