Newham & Essex Beagles' Olympic 400m champion Christine Ohuruogu has been named captain of the London North team for next month's Super 8 competition in Cardiff.

The action-packed, two-hour contest on Wednesday, June 10, is modelled on Twenty20 cricket.

"I think it is a brilliant concept," Ohuruogu told the BBC.

"I am a Stratford girl and being able to represent your nearest town or city is a really exciting idea."

With something happening every few minutes, there are five track events, five field events and medley relays over varying distances.

And the meeting will act as the final selection event for the GB team for the European Team Championships.
