Nicola Adams: Ebor draw

Leeds-born Adams became the first woman to win an Olympic boxing gold medal earlier this month.

She will be in the York winner's enclosure at 11.30am to assist in determining the stalls positions for the 20 runners in the Ebor.

Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: "Nicola wrote a new chapter in global sporting history and is a fiercely proud Yorkshire lass who's a real people's champion.

"We always knew she would be a world-beater and fantastic ambassador for our county.

"So it will be amazing to see her at York racecourse with her medals and give the people of her home county the chance to show their appreciation for her."
