Christine Ohuruogu insists that she is still taking part in the World Championships this month.

Christine Ohuruogu is adamant that she will compete in the World Championships despite finishing last in her final major event before Daegu.

The 27-year-old was left trailing at the London Diamond League meeting, finishing two seconds behind winner Sanya Richards-Ross.

"I don't believe it will take me long to get fit. I'm still going [to the World Championships]," said Ohuruogu.

"You need to be fit, you need to be fast and need to be strong. I'm lacking in a few areas. I just haven't done enough work to challenge these girls.

"I did enjoy [the race], I've missed running with these girls. I gave them all a big hug before we started."

Olympic 400m champion Ohuruogu has already achieved the qualifying time required for the Great British squad travelling to South Korea.
