Commonwealth silver medallist Natasha Danvers-Smith gave the Norwich Union GB side a winning start at Wednesday night's SPAR European Cup in Malaga.


Competing seriously for the first time since the birth of son Jaden in December 2004, Danvers-Smith was a convincing winner of the 400 metres hurdles in a time of 55.65seconds.


The Los Angeles-based star claimed her third successive victory this month, leading from start to finish ahead of Yevgeniya Isakova and Tetyana Tereshchuk-Antipova.


Despite closing her down in the final 10 metres, Danvers-Smith's Russian and Ukrainian rivals left their challenges too late, finishing in 55.82sec and 55.87sec.


It was the perfect start for the British women, returning to Super League action after being relegated two years ago, well aware this year they face a tough test to stay in the top flight.
