Christie sprints to league double

Britain's former Olympic sprint champion Linford Christie gained a sparkling double in the opening British League Division One match at Enfield yesterday. He raced to victory in the 100 metres in 10.30 sec to better the divisional record he set last summer. Just over an hour later he took the 200 metres in 20.61 sec, the fastest time by a British athlete this summer. Meanwhile at Telford, Cardiff's new British indoor 400 metre record holder Jamie Baulch won the 200m in 21.1sec and then helped Cardiff to victory in the 4x100 and 4x400m relays
