BIRMINGHAM (GBR): World indoor pentathlon champion Katarina Johnson-Thompson, plus three of Britain's four current European indoor champions will be in action at the British Indoor Championships in Birmingham on 9-10 February. Johnson-Thompson goes in the 60m hurdles, where she meets returning Olympic fourth-placer Cindy Ofili, and the long jump which also features Jazmin Sawyers. Looking for national success ahead of defending their European titles will be Asha Philip (60m), Richard Kilty, who faces Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake and retirement-breaker Dwain Chambers in the 60m, and Laura Muir, who goes against Melissa Courtney and Eilish McColgan in the 3000m, the latter also entered over 1500m. British pole vaulter record-holder Holly Bradshaw highlights the women's field events, along with Morgan Lake in the high jump. The men's 3000m assembles Andrew Butchart, Chris O'Hare and Charlie Grice, while Shelayna Oskan-Clarke and Lynsey Sharp are the big names in the women's 800m. Tom Bosworth may have his 5000m walk national record under threat.
