Sanders prepared for Birmingham

Sanders hopes Birmingham will prove her lucky city again

British 400 metres runner Nicola Sanders has her sights firmly set on the Olympic Games when she competes in Birmingham next month.

Victory at the National Championships would rubber stamp a trip to Beijing for the European indoor champion.

"After kick-starting my season by winning at the European Cup, I am now hoping to build on that," Sanders said.

"Birmingham is a great athletics city and has been good to me. I won European gold there," she added.

It is the first time that the Alexander Stadium has staged the trials since 2003 and a few places in the Great Britain team travelling to China will have been decided before the event which runs from 11-13 July.

Sanders and World Champion Christine Ohuruogu are both expected to be capable of challenging for medals at the Games in August.
