Fionnuala Britton second in Brussels Cross Country event

Ireland's Fionnuala Britton finished an impressive second in the women's race at Sunday's international cross country meeting in Belgium.

The Wicklow woman, who retained her European title two weeks ago, finished behind Ethiopian Ruti Aga at the Iris Lotto CrossCup meeting.

Those behind Britton included last year's race winner Caroline Chepkwony of Kenya and Belgian Almensch Belete.

Britton will run in Edinburgh on 5 January and Antrim a week later.

The European champion will be the big draw at the Antrim IAAF Cross Country meeting which she also won last January.
