Eilidh Child is to sit out January's Sainsbury's International Match in Glasgow after confirming she will not participate in a full indoor season.

With Mo Farah and Lynsey Sharp also having passed up on coming to the Emirates Arena for Scotland's only top-level meeting next year, the absence of the European outdoor 400 metres hurdles champion is a further blow. The event has also lost its televised slot on the BBC.

But Child - named Sportswoman of the Year at the weekend's Women in Sport awards - has unveiled plans to focus all her energies on the outdoor campaign and landing a World Championship medal in Beijing next August.

"I'll take my time, do winter training and then prepare for the summer," said the Bath-based Scot. "I could still look at the relay at the European Indoor Championships, but I'm not going to train specifically for it."
