The perfect final pit stop on the path to her first Olympics for runner Angie Petty.

She's received an invite to compete at the London Diamond League meet this weekend, the last major event before Rio.

Petty had hoped for a call up for the 800metres, but was left to wait awhile.

She didn't think she was going to be in, until she ran two minutes flat in Belgium last week.

Shotputter Tom Walsh will also compete in London.
