OHURUOGU OPENS UP AT BISLETT; ATHLETICS.

OLYMPIC 400 metres champion Chrissy Ohuruogu runs her first major race of the season against world-class opposition in tonight's Bislett Games in Oslo.

Ohuruogu, with just one low-key outing under her belt this summer, has no hang-ups about stepping into the world famous arena against two of her biggest rivals.

Jamaica's Shericka Williams and American Sanya Richards, the silver and bronze medallist's behind her in Beijing last summer, are included in a line-up which will fully test the British winner.

For Ohuruogu, though, the contest is not about a rematch of the trio's thrilling clash on that occasion, but more the opportunity to assess her condition before next month's World Championships.

The 25-year-old Londoner has deliberately planned four hard races before Berlin hosts the championships from August 15-23.
