Victoria Ohuruogu, the 17-year-old sister of Olympic 400m champion Christine, has been called up to represent Great Britain in the European Youth Olympic Trials in Moscow from 21 to 23 May.

The teenager, who trains with her sister at the Lee Valley Athletics Centre in north London, has been rewarded for her 400m victory in the England Under-20 Indoor Championships in February. She has been selected as part of a 22-strong British squad who will be hoping to qualify for the IOC Youth Olympics, to be held in Singapore in August.

The Ohuruogus were both in winning action over 400m at the Bryan Clay Invitational meeting in California last month, Christine prevailing in the A race in 52.30sec and Victoria triumphing in the B event in 56.10sec.
