EILIDH Doyle will receive a World Championship medal in London tomorrow – regardless of how she fares on the track.

The 30-year-old Pitreavie AAC star will go for glory in the 400 metres hurdles and 4x400m relay at the London Stadium for Great Britain at the IAAF World Championships.

But while she aims to medal at a third successive global event, she will receive a new medal as one of 11 individual athletes and five teams who will receive their rightful medals from previous championships.

Doyle won bronze in the 4x400m in Moscow 2013, and at Beijing two years ago, but the former will now be upgraded to silver after a change in results due to doping offences.

Russia won the gold, with the United States second and GB third, but last year their anchor runner Antonina Krivoshapka’s samples from the 2012 Olympics were retested.

After being found to contain turinabol, she was handed a two-year ban earlier this year, which included this event, and Russia were disqualified.

Doyle will be joined by Shana Cox, Margaret Adeoye and Christine Ohuruogu in picking up silver medals, and IAAF president Seb Coe said: “I’m delighted that the athletes are properly honoured for their achievements and what better way than in front of passionate athletics fans at a major championship.

“For those receiving gold medals their moment in London will be all the more special as they will hear their national anthem played. Whatever their nationality clean athletes worldwide will celebrate with them.”

This year’s championships will be the fifth that Doyle has competed in, after semi-final appearances in the 400m hurdles in 2009 and 2011, a fifth place in the 2013 and a sixth place two years ago.

She sealed qualification by winning her fourth successive British Championship title and was chosen by her team-mates to captain the team.

She was picked ahead of athletes such as Sir Mo Farah and described it as a “huge honour” and a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity”.
