Athletics: Britton shines in Brussels

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.
