Athletics to return to Olympic Park on anniversary
The Olympic Park will host the 2013 British Athletics London Grand Prix on the anniversary of the Opening Ceremony.
Mo Farah, Olympic 5,000m and 10,000m champion, said: "The atmosphere was electric during the Games, I'll never forget it, so it's great that the British fans, and athletes, will get to experience that again so soon after the Games."
Olympic silver medalist faces life ban after failing drugs test
Olympic silver medalist Darya Pishchalnikova is under investigation by the sport's world governing body (IAAF) after failing a drugs test, the Russian anti-doping agency (RUSADA) said.
Pishchalnikova, who finished second at the London Olympics this year, tested positive for an anabolic steroid.
"In October 2012, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) ordered that Pishchalnikova's sample, taken on May 20 2012, was re-tested at a laboratory in Lausanne. The result was adverse," RUSADA said in a statement on its website.
Pishchalnikova, who has denied any wrongdoing, could face a life ban from the sport if found guilty because it would be her second offence. She served a doping ban of two years nine months from July 2008 to April 2011.
British 100m hopeful storms to victory ahead of Olympics
Britain's rising 100m star Adam Gemili set a new personal best of 10.05 secs as he raced to victory at the World Junior Championships tonight.
The 18-year-old, who has emerged as a late runner for Team GB at London 2012, had qualified fastest for the showdown in Barcelona but showed even greater class in the final.
While the winning time would still leave Gemili a few metres behind Usain Bolt at senior level, with the Jamaican star attempting to beat his world record of 9.58 secs next month, it underlined the Londoner's enormous potential ahead of the home Games.
