SPRINT star Sophie Taylor aims to make a triumphant return to her hometown at the Bendigo International Madison this weekend.

Taylor’s sights are on victory in the Gold & Opal Club women’s 120m at the Tom Flood Sports Centre.

Now racing with Diamond Valley, Taylor first competed with Eaglehawk and racked up many gold medal-winning feats at Victoria Country championship level.

Seven heats of the women’s 120m will be run on Saturday afternoon at the Barnard Street track.

Taylor’s campaign starts in heat two where she is backmarker off 5.5m.

Her lead-up included last month’s Victorian Open where she was eighth in the 100m final.

Tierra Exum, sister of basketball star Dante, will chase glory in Bendigo.

The open 70m champion at Maryborough on New Year’s Day, Exum has drawn heat six where she will start off eight metres.

Exum raced off 13.5m at Maryborough’s Princes Park and won in 7.66 seconds.

She beat Dylan Panizza who later won the Maryborough Gift final.

Last year’s 120m champion in Bendigo, Catherine Hibberd will race off 19.5m in heat five.

Kyabram’s Carlie Whitford has regularly competed with Eaglehawk at Athletics Bendigo meets and will start off 12m in heat four.

Malvern’s Kendra Hubbard and Ballarat’s Holly Dobbyn face a daunting task qualifying for Sunday’s final.

Hubbard will race off 2.5m and Dobbyn from 3.5m in heats six and seven respectively.
