Olympian Thomas Barr begins his outdoor season this weekend with two races in England.
The first a 200 metres hurdles race is timed for 6.17 pm this evening in Manchester. The event takes place on the Great CityGames track on Deansgate in the heart of the city, and at the purpose built athletics arena in Albert Square, and is part of a great weekend of sport in Manchester.
200 metres hurdle races are rarely run but Thomas did run a very fast one last year, he faces three athletes this evening in his race.
On Sunday he runs in his favourite event the 400 metres hurdles in Loughboro.
