  • GB & N.I Team Selection For European U18 Championships, Jerusalem, 4 - 7 July

    First Championship of the Season is the European U-18s in Jerusalem, Israel start 4 July. Here's the team.

    https://www.britishathletics.org.uk/...championships/

    Coverage is usually eurovisionsports.tv
    As mentioned by Grassmarket in the UK Outdoor Results thread for June, the Great Britain team selection for the upcoming Euro U18s was finalized yesterday and published this morning. I thought it would be worthy enough of having it's own dedicated thread for discussion about the athletes who are going to Israel in just over a fortnight's time, some of whom we hope in the coming years will become future regulars, if not stars, in the sport in the UK.

    The team consists of the following:

      Occasional Hope As Grassmarket stated in his comment that I quoted, usually Eurovisionsports stream the event, and that's on behalf of the European Athletics website.

      Thanks - I obviously didn't read closely enough

    Great team there with a lot of athletes in the top 3 as it stands in their event. Obviously more could have been selected but the quota prevents that.

      You have to be wary with an athlete of 17, but I do think Mia McIntosh is a special talent. I can see her mixing it with the Jamaicans and Americans in Cali, and she'll still be a junior for the next champs in 2024.

        After seeing her run for the first time during the age group indoor championships earlier this year, I personally earmarked Mia as someone to look out for in the summer. And so far she has exceeded what I had thought she was capable of outdoors. I certainly wasn't expecting her to take down Lucy Jane Matthews U17 record the way she did last weekend.

        An exciting prospect.
