Donna Fraser has revealed she doesn’t want to quit athletics but would rather go out on a high than a low after being denied victory in the 200m at the Birmingham Games on Saturday.

The evergreen 36-year-old turned back the clock and came back to the public limelight when she claimed a unique 200m/400m double at last weekend’s UK Indoor Championships in Sheffield, proving she still has plenty in the tank.

But 400m Olympic, World and Commonwealth champion Christine Ohuruogu denied the Penge resident victory at the weekend by overtaking her in the final stride in a seasons best time of 23.42secs.

Fraser clocked 23.47 while 60m UK Indoor champion Joice Maduaka was third in 23.61.

Fraser, who earlier crashed out of the 60m heats, said: “I don’t want to quit but at the same time I’ll rather finish on a high and not on the low,”

“If I keep slogging it then it will eventually come to an end and I wouldn’t be happy.

“I did say last season that I’ll quit but I couldn’t after Beijing. I’m taking every day as it comes so we’ll see what happens.

“I don’t want to be disappointed but I’m enjoying it now running the shorter distances because it’s fun.

“I would have liked to have won but it was just one of those things.”

Also in the same meeting Crystal Palace-based American Jamie Nieto finished sixth in the men’s high jump with a season’s best 2.23m effort, while Fraser’s Croydon Harrier clubmate Tasha Danvers spent the afternoon watching and signing autographs.

James Dasaolu failed to make the 60m final after finishing sixth in his heats.
