Bit biased, But this is only open to Londoners

Two lucky Londoner readers will be able to cheer on Britain's best athletes as they compete in Japan at the 11th IAAF World Championships in Athletics.
Britain achieved a mammoth haul of 162 medals at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne last year.

Now The Londoner is offering two readers the chance to fly to the Japanese city of Osaka to support our sports stars at the championships - this year's main track and field event.

The British squad for the championships, which will be held from 25 August to 2 September, hasn't been selected yet.

But some of the medal hopefuls you could be cheering for include Olympic bronze medal-winning heptathlete Kelly Sotherton and Commonwealth Games gold medal winning decathlete Dean Macey.

And after a fun day at the sporting arena you'll find there's plenty to do in Osaka as well.

It is Japan's second city with a population of 2.5 million. One of its most famous attractions is the Shitenno Temple, founded in 593AD and one of the oldest Buddhist temples to be found in Japan.

A more recent addition to the city's skyline is the Umeda Sky Building. At 173m high, it offers spectacular views of the city from its floating garden observatory.
  • The Londoner competition is for two people and includes return flights, 4 nights accommodation, VIP tickets to 2 days of the World Championships and a meal with Sebastian Coe. And the carbon emissions from your flights will be offset as part of the prize.
