Novel challenge pits Child and Sharp together

Lynsey Sharp is preparing to face fellow European Championship medallist Eilidh Child and reigning world 400m champion Christine Ohuruogu in a novel 500m race in the Great North CityGames on the Newcastle-Gateshead Quayside on Saturday, September 6.

The event, which will be run partly on road and partly on track, brings together world-class British athletes from three specialist disciplines: 800m, 400m hurdles and 400m flat. "It's just a really unique opportunity to be able to run a 500m race," said Sharp, who won 800m silver to Child's 400m hurdles gold in Zurich.
