LOVES LONDON: Novlene Williams-Mills

FANS WHO have been priced out of an Olympic ticket have been urged to get down to the Crystal Palace Diamond League event on July 13 to sample the world's best sprinters in action.

It’s a well known fact that tickets are hard to come by for the men's 100m final at the London Olympic Games with demand far outstripping supply.

This Friday the Diamond League rolls into London for the last major track and field meeting before the 2012 Olympic Games begin on July 27.
A much anticipated battle between Jamaica’s Asafa Powell and US sprinter Tyson Gay is set to steal the limelight on the first day of the two-day event, which also features a host of marquee names from around the globe.

Talking to the Voice of Sport, Jamaican 400m specialist Novlene Williams-Mills said she loved coming to London and was looking forward to the warm reception Jamaican athletes always received whenever they compete on these shores.

She said: “Every time you go to a track meet and the Jamaican’s come and support it always feels like home. You want their support all the time, so I look forward to seeing lots of Jamaicans in the crowd at Crystal Palace.”

Looking forward to doing battle with Britain’s very own Christine Ohuruogu, Novlene Williams-Mills said she always looks forward to racing against the Olympic champion. She added: “She (Christine) is a very fierce competitor but at the end of the day we both just have to go out there and run. It should be a good race. When you go out there to compete, everybody is your rival, you just have to go out there and run.”

To take advantage of the two-for-one ticket offer, look out for special flyers being given away on the July 13 outside Crystal Palace station and in various south London community hotspots.
