Athletics: Denise Lewis
Friday 13 October 1995
Denise Lewis, Britain's Commonwealth Games heptathlon champion, is to undergo knee surgery in a bid to ensure an injury-free build-up to next year's Olympics in Atlanta. Lewis has been troubled by scar tissue on her right knee.
Great Britain will stage their 1996 Grand Prix at Crystal Palace on 12 July. The circuit has been extended by two meetings to 18, with Tokyo, Atlanta, Eugene and Moscow added and New York and San Jose dropping out. Sponsors have increased the prize fund by 20 per cent to around pounds 120,000 for the four-date Ricoh tour, in which six new disciplines - 200m, 1,000m, 60m hurdles and high jump for men, and 1,000m and triple jump for women - have been added.
