Robbie Grabarz secured his place in the high jump at London 2012 with victory at the athletics Olympic Trials in Birmingham.

Grabarz - who is ranked second in the world in 2012 - won with a best leap of 2.28 metres.

Two more athletes were able to book their place on the British team, with Goldie Sayers winning the javelin and Nick McCormick's second place in the 5,000m good enough for him to join world champion Mo Farah in the line-up.

"I'm absolutely over the moon," 30-year-old McCormick said.

"I've made my first Olympics at 30 years old so it's been a long time coming. I'm delighted to seal selection after running the qualifying time two weeks ago.

"I need to work hard now in training and I want to make the final in London."
