Paralympics: Cockroft and Peacock to star in Birmingham


Paralympic champions Jonnie Peacock and Hannah Cockroft are set to join a world-class line-up when Birmingham hosts the IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final.

The one-day meet on 29 June will be the seventh and final event of the global series that was introduced earlier this year following the success of the London Paralympics.

The competition, being staged at the Alexander Stadium one day before the British Athletics Grand Prix and three weeks before the World Championships, will involve more than 144 athletes competing in 18 events.
