Olympic sprint relay champion Darren Campbell is set to feature in what could be one of his final 100 metres races when he competes at the Celtic Cup in Falkirk next month.


The 32-year-old is heading towards the end of a highly successful career which has seen him win medals at Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth level.


However, the Sale Harrier has struggled to reach world-class form in the last two seasons. He failed to qualify for next month's European Championships, not progressing beyond his heat in the 100m before pulling out of the 200m at the trials in Manchester.


However, given his experience, he may be included in the 4x100m relay squad.


Coached by former world and Olympic champion Linford Christie, Campbell's season has been hampered by injury and his appearance in the inaugural meeting at the Grangemouth Stadium may well be one of his last over the shorter sprint.

The Celtic Cup is an international match between Scotland, Ireland and Wales and will also include guest athletes on Thursday, August 17.
