SPRINT sensation Hayley Jones will be flying the flag for Great Britain at the World Championships this weekend.

The Wigan Harrier is in the women’s 100m relay squad.

She hopes to be selected for the heats on Sunday with eyes fixed firmly on winning a medal in the final later that day. The squad has been at a holding camp in Barcelona to prepare for the event in Russia. Jones’ season best of 11.31 is the third fastest in Britain this year. She missed out on selection for the individual event after injury prevented her competing in the World Trials final last month.
