Lynsey Sharp jetted back from Sweden today with London on her mind after shattering her season’s best for the second time in a week at yesterday’s Diamond League meeting in Stockholm.

The Capital star was again inside the qualifying mark for August’s world championships, coming eighth in a time of 2:00.19. The 26-year-old was only a second behind Olympic silver medallist Francine Niyonsaba, who claimed victory ahead of home favourite Lovisa Lindh.

Sharp, who has opted out of next weekend’s European Team Championships in Lille, is not expected to return to action until the British trials in Birmingham in two weeks time.
