With the 2017 edition of the Loughborough International Athletics meeting drawing ever closer, tickets for the annual curtain raiser are now on sale.
Taking place on the Sunday 21st May, the event will see Loughborough University take on England, Scotland, Wales and GB & NI Juniors, in what is always a thrilling contest.
With the likes of Jessica Ennis-Hill, Greg Rutherford and Adam Gemili having contested the fixture in the past, the event has true international flavour.
This year London 2012 and Rio 2016 Paralympic 100m champion Jonnie Peacock will line up in the 100m as he kick starts his preparations for the London 2017 World Championships, which take place on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this July and August.
Another big name sprinter confirmed for the Loughborough meeting is Asha Philip, the sprint queen winning bronze in Rio 2016 as part of the Team GB 4x100m quartet. Like Peacock, Philip trains on the Loughborough track day in, day out, so will know exactly what to expect.
Leading the way for the Loughborough University team will be current Economics & Accounting student David Omoregie. The precocious talent, who already has a European U23 title to his name, will be hoping for victory in the 110m hurdles, as he bids to qualify for his first World Championships this summer.
