NEWHAM & ESSEX BEAGLES Olympic Champion Christine Ohuruogu was unable to register a victory in her two events at the Woodie's DIY Irish Indoor Championships in Belfast at the weekend.
The 'Stratford Express' Olympic 400m champion's sixth in the 60m was not a major surprise, but finishing third in the 200m was a poor result.
Ohuruogu finished in 24.33, behind Irish duo Kelly Proper (24.10) and Niamh Whelan (24.26).
The Beagle made a terrible start and clocked 7.73 in the 60m final.
