ATHLETICS: Speedy Devonish earns European Cup call-up.
Although Malcolm recorded a brilliant sprint double at Thursday's Helsinki Grand Prix, the selectors have instead chosen Devonish following his superb 200m victory in Poland last weekend when he beat a strong field which included Olympic bronze medallist Ato Boldon.
UK Athletics performance director Max Jones said: "Marlon and Christian are both world-class athletes. We have every confidence Marlon will produce an elite performance in Bremen."
Meanwhile, Katharine Merry has pulled out of tomorrow's Nuremburg meeting. The Dunchurch sprinter is suffering from a throat and chest infection.
