FIONNUALA BRITTON wrapped up her year in flying form by finishing second at the IAAF Lotto Cross Cup in Brussels yesterday.

Ethiopia's Ruti Aga won the 6,000m race in 20:48, with Ireland's double European champion three seconds behind. The men's race was won by Kenya's Gilbert Kirui.

Britton's next race will be the Bupa Great Edinburgh Cross Country on January 5 and Ireland's Linda Byrne has also been selected on the European team for that event.
