Devonish Wins Nivea Sprint Challenge

Coventry sprinter Marlon Devonish is $10,000 better off after a fine weekend for local athletes.

The 100 metre man came second in the Sheffield Grand Prix meeting to win the Nivea Sprint Challenge designed to unearth the next Linford Christie.

He was leading the series going into the Sheffield event and his second place behind Dwain Chambers was enough to give him the overall victory.

Rugby’s Katharine Merry chalked up her fast 200m time of the season at the same meeting, coming home fourth in 22.93sec.

Andy Hart, of Coventry Godiva, was seventh in the 800m, finishing in 1min 46.77sec, but the first Britain home. It was his first outing since missing the AAAs with injury.
