Child aims to use Caribbean jaunt to relay her intentions

There are worse places to while away a May weekend than the Bahamas, Eilidh Child admits.

Judging by the responses to beach photos posted on social media yesterday, envy is in the air.

The Caribbean is the venue for the IAAF’s newest creation, the world relay championships, and while significant prizes – both in ­stature and hard cash – are at stake this weekend, there is a sense that the competitors have been lured as much by the destination as their competitive urge.

Child, expected to lead Great ­Britain and Northern Ireland’s 4×400 metres bid, admits to mixed feelings. “It’s a big event but it feels strange,” the Scot admits. Yet there is a title at stake, as well as an opportunity for her squad – which also includes the world champion Christine Ohuruogu – to have a dress rehearsal for the European Championships in August.

“It’s good to show what you can do,” she adds. “The more experience we can get together as a team will help. I?¯like doing the first leg and I?¯want to stamp my authority on it so I?¯can do it again at the Europeans.”

Both the British men’s and women’s 4x100m squads will have medal hopes while the male 4x400m line-up, which features Jamie Bowie, will aim to match the silver claimed in March’s world indoor championships. Child would be disappointed to return empty-handed. “We are the current world bronze medallists, indoors and outdoors, so hopefully we can do something.”
