Dasaolu to compete in Glasgow

James Dasaolu confirmed today he will compete at the British Athletics International Match in Glasgow on Saturday 25 January 2014.

The Emirates Arena will host the indoor competition, and after winning a silver medal in the Indoor European Championships, James is looking forward to making his Glasgow bow.

“This will be my first time competing at the Glasgow British Athletics International Match, but I know that with the calibre of athletes heading to Scotland every year, I will be in for a test,” said James. “I showed that I can produce fast times when it matters and I will be looking to put in a strong performance for the Scottish crowd come the end of January.”

“2013 was a breakthrough season for me winning a medal at the European Indoors, dipping below the 10 seconds for the first time and showing the world that I will be one to watch over the next few years. Next year, I hope to build on this with the World Indoors in Poland, and hopefully another trip onto the podium.”

It was also announced today that Jonnie Peacock, Kim Collins, Eilidh Child and Laura Muir will also compete at the indoor meet.
