FRANCIS Cannon is set to compete in the World Masters Athletic Championships in Sacramento, California this week.

The veteran Teviotdale Harrier warmed up for the international event by competing in the British Masters Championships at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham at the weekend.

However, competing in the 800 metres 60-64 years age group Francis wasn’t at his best due to a season which has been plagued with injuries and will be keen to improve next week.
