Big Korea move is Child aim; ATHLETICS LATEST.

SCOTLAND'S Eilidh Child will try to convince UK Athletics selectors she deserves a spot at next month's world championships in Korea despite missing out on the automatic qualifying time.

Child was sixth in the 400metres hurdles as Jamaica's Kaliese Spencer ran the fastest time in the world this year. She said: "I hope I still go. Perri Shakes-Drayton is the only one with the A Standard and I've got the B. "I feel my 400 flat time will make me a useful back-up in the relay as well so if you put the two together, that might count in my favour."

CAPTION(S):

NOBODY'S 3CHILD but Eilidh reckons the timing is still right to let her go to World Championships
