Linford Christie plans to bring a hectic season to a premature close after two meetings this weekend. Christie runs in Friday night's Grand Prix in Brussels providing a knee injury has cleared, followed by Sunday's McDonald's Games at Sheffield.

Primo Nebiolo, president of the International Amateur Athletics Federation, has said that athletes who break world records at next year's World Championships in Athens will be paid a bonus of pounds 66,000. The award is available after an agreement was reached with an unnamed sponsor, and Nebiolo said the federation hoped to expand the scheme to other major meetings.
