ATHLETICS: JACKSON IS KEEPING BUSY.

Colin Jackson continues his testing build-up to the World Indoor Championships with a third 60m hurdles competition in five days when he competes in Dortmund tonight.

Jackson will come up against Jamaican Maurice Wignall, with whom he dead-heated in Erfut last Friday, as well as last year's European indoor silver medallist Elmar Lichtenegger, whom he has beaten twice in the past week.

The World Indoors in Birmingham, from March 14-16, will be Jackson's last appearance in a Great Britian team vest. The Welshman has vowed to mark his retirement after 17 years on the international stage with something special.

``The World Indoor Championships will definitely be my last race,'' he said. ``Obviously I want to perform well.''
