World Long Jump silver medallist Shara Proctor (coach: Rana Reider) will make her first appearance of the 2016 season at the PSD Bank Meeting in Dusseldorf tonight with four other Brits in action.
Proctor, who leaped a personal best of 7.07m in Beijing last August to claim a world medal behind Tianna Bartoletta (USA), will face a strong field in Germany, which includes world bronze medallist Ivana Spanovic (SER).
2015 European Indoor 60m hurdles medallists Lucy Hatton (Jerzy Maciukiewicz) and Serita Solomon (Michelle Bovell) will be looking for more success indoors over the next few months. Hatton claimed silver in Prague last year with Solomon taking bronze for their first medals on the European stage. The duo will face a tough line-up which includes world 100m hurdles medallists Cindy Roleder (GER) and Alina Talay (BLR).
The men’s 60m hurdles will be one of the events of the evening as Lawrence Clarke (Samba-Koundy Giscard), faces Orlando Ortega (CUB) as well as European 60m indoor silver medallist Dimitri Bascou (FRA). Desiree Henry (Reider) begins her 2016 season in the 60m taking on Olympic and world 4x100m relay medallist Jeneba Tarmoh (USA).
