Ohuruogu wins on Glasgow comeback

11 August 2007

Christine Ohuruogu coasted to victory in her first race since returning from a drugs suspension at the Scottish National Championships in Glasgow.

The 23-year-old, whose 12-month ban for missing three out-of-competition tests expired last week, reached Sunday's final in a time of 53.09 seconds.

"I should be able to go faster than that," said Ohuruogu, who is also competing in the 200m.

Ohuruogu is 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.

Ohuruogu sped around a very wet Scotstoun stadium track in a very respectable time to win by over 50m in the first of the competition's three heats.

"As an elite athlete, I should be be able to run well in all kinds of conditions," said Ohuruogu, who added merely that it was "good" to be back in action after her lengthy lay-off.
