Angie Petty's feeling the pressure as she looks to continue her national legacy.

The Kiwi 800 metre runner will begin her season at this weekend's Potts Classic in Hastings, as she looks to get back on track after a frustrating Olympics.

Illness on the day saw Petty fail to make it out of her heat, with this year's world championships her first step towards the Tokyo Games.

The seven time champion says the Potts Classic has always been a great way to start the year.

She says while she doesn't want to peak early, the local races are important to her.
