Capital star Lynsey Sharp (Edinburgh AC) will have her final outing before the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games when she runs an 800 metres in a World Challenge meeting in Madrid tonight.

Among her opponents will be the South African former world champion Caster Semenya, who has controversially been left out of their Games team, American stars Jenny Simpson and Maggie Vessey and the Cuban Rosemary Almanza, who beat Sharp in finishing second in the Diamond League meeting at Hampden last Saturday.
