ATHLETICS: Talbot clinches Commonwealth Games place

This Is Wiltshire: Danny Talbot Danny Talbot

HILPERTON sprinter Danny Talbot has been included in England's 129-strong team for next month's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Talbot, who will represent Great Britain over 100m in the European Team Championships in Germany this weekend, has been selected for the 200m in Scotland, alongside teammates Chris Clarke and James Ellington.

The Wiltshire competitor's fine early-season form has seen him post the fastest 200m by a British male so for this season, with 20.36 set in Ptague last Monday.

That personal best also took him well inside the 20.55 mark required for the European Championships later this summer.
