The 32-year-old produced her quickest time of 2012 so far, winning in 52.70 seconds as she continued her build-up to next month's Olympic trials. "It was a warm night but very windy, so I'm happy with the time," she said.
* Steph Twell runs her first outdoor 1500 metres in the Netherlands tomorrow since she took bronze in the 2010 Commonwealth Games, but she admits there is no time to ease herself gently back into the fray.
The Scotland internationalist, who missed most of last year because of a broken ankle, steps up her preparations for the Aviva UK Trials next month at the Fanny Blankers-Koen Games in Hengelo. Already having achieved the Olympic qualifying standard for 5000m, she now wants the time in her preferred event.
"I've been forging ahead ever since this ankle injury," said the 22-year-old. "Peak form should come closer to the trials and the Games, but I want the qualifying time. If I'm close to it, I'll be happy because it's my first 1500m but, by Rome [on Thursday], I'll want the time under my belt. Everyone wants that before the trials."
* Lynsey Sharp, of Edinburgh AC, heads for Rabat, Morocco for an international permit meeting tomorrow night, featuring mostly Eastern European opposition.
It follows her season's debut in Manchester, where she clocked a Scottish rankings-leading 2min 2.76sec in winning the 800m at the BMC Grand Prix. Her target is to get closer to her personal best 2:00.65 and the UK Athletics A Olympic standard of 1:59.90.
* Dundee's Eilish McColgan makes her season's debut in the 3000m steeplechase in the Flanders Cup in Belgium today, and also in action are the Scottish 400m internationalists Gemma Nicol (Dunfermline & West Fife) and Jamie Bowie (Inverness Harriers).
* Pitreavie's Eilidh Child, the Scottish 400m hurdles record-holder, is looking forward to running in the Diamond League meeting in Rome on Thursday.
"I'll be one of the slowest in the field so I'm hoping I'll be pulled round in a fast time," said Child, chasing an Olympic A standard qualifying time of 55.50sec.
* Ross Houston is counting on an influx of athletes chasing Olympic qualifying to secure a new personal best in tomorrow's Edinburgh Marathon. The Scot, third last year, will face a number of South Africans and Kenyans after organisers lured overseas competitors with the opportunity to earn a fast time ahead of London.
"There are at least five guys with a quicker personal best than me," said Houston. "We could get a good group at the front; that would be great."
