England team ready to compete at Loughborough International Athletics

The annual Loughborough International Athletics (LIA) event will make a welcome return to Loughborough University on Sunday 18th May 2014.

Now in its 56th year, and the curtain raiser to the outdoor season, the athletes will be looking to make an impression on the track and in the field with the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games now less than 100 days away.  Last year’s event saw stand out performances from a number of London 2012 Olympians including Rhys Williams, Eilidh Child and Perri Shakes-Drayton.
