IAAF Moscow

Today the 14th Athletics World Championships starts, held in Moscow.
For many of the competitors it will be the first main tournament since the London Olympics.

British Athletics has named a team of 60 who will compete.

British Athletics performance director Neil Black said:

“The team selected for GB & NI are a mix of defending champions, potential medallists, finalists and some really exciting young talents that we see as future medallists,”

“Last weekend’s Sainsbury’s British Championships was a brilliant stage for the world trials, and we saw some world class performances. It gave the selectors a real opportunity to see the athletes in championship mode and we were not disappointed.

“A year on from the Games and it is great to look forward to Moscow with the selected team, as we take our first steps in the build up towards Rio 2016 and London 2017.”
