Athlete Mark English, who hails from Donegal, will be running in New York this weekend for Saturday night’s Diamond League meet.

This will be the 21 year-old's third week in a row on the track as he builds towards the European Championships in Zurich in August, and he will be facing some tough competition against 800m superstar David Rushida from Kenya.

Last week he achieved a season’s best of 1.46.22 at the FBK Games in Hengelo and he also won the previous Saturday at the IFAM meet in Belgium.
