Agbo ready to stake claim for European Championships
PHYLLIS Agbo will get the chance to stake her claim to join world champion Jess Ennis at this summer's European Athletics Championships in Estonia later this month.
Heptathlete Ennis will be considered one of Great Britain's medal bankers but Agbo faces stiff competition to make the plane to Barcelona.
Louise Hazel, who made her World Championship debut in Berlin last year, placed ahead of her in Gotzis last month, where Agbo completed only six events and failed to register a mark in the long jump.
However, she joins Grace Clements, Dominique Blaize and Louise Wood, all coached by Julie Hollman, in the squad for the European Cup Combined Events Super League competition in Tallinn, Estonia on 26-27 June.
Having ended the 2009 season ranked tenth in the country for heptathlon, 18-year old Wood has enjoyed an impressive season with personal bests in the 800m, shot, 60m hurdles, high jump and long jump.
Also on form this year is Blaize, who has improved her shot, 800m, long jump and her overall points best to 5671 and will look to replicate similar performances on the European stage.
