NOTTWIL THE NEXT STOP FOR WORLD PARA ATHLETICS GP
Ten-time world champion Hannah Cockroft (coach: Jenni Banks) headlines the field at the World Para Athletics Grand Prix in Nottwil from Friday 25 May to Sunday 27 May.
Cockroft enjoyed a successful series out at the Swiss meets last year, clocking world records over a number of distances to prepare perfectly for last summer’s World Para Athletics championships. She will be targeting more fine preparations this time around for the 2018 summer season, starting with the 200m and 800m on day one.
World medallist Richard Chiassaro (Banks) continues to show great form after an unfortunate puncture during the Commonwealth Games final earlier this year, and will be looking for some quick times across the three days in Switzerland. He will be joined by the ever-improving Nathan Maguire (Ste Hoskins) and British Athletics Futures Academy athlete Dillon Labrooy (Jenny Archer) in a series of T54 200m and 800m heats on the first day of track action.
World T53 100m silver medallist Mickey Bushell (Archer) lines up at the start of a busy week, as he also competes in the Daniela Jutzeler event and Swiss Nationals after the GP.
Commonwealth Games silver medallist in the marathon, JohnBoy Smith (Archer), continues to sharpen up on the track, with his name on the entry lists here.
Full start lists and results will be available here.
