Former Jamaican sprinter Merlene Ottey could make history today as the oldest athlete to compete in the European Championships, which begin today. 50-year-old Merlene Ottey could be a historical sportswoman if she is picked to run in Slovenia’s 4x100-metre relay team.

Merlene Ottey took Slovenian citizenship in 2002, won a bronze medal in the 200m at the 1980 Olympics, the first of nine medals she collected at Olympic level.

But she never managed to win gold at the Games.
