We want to wish all five athletes and the British team as a whole all the very best for competition at the Euro U23s.
The selections reflect well on their clubs (and those clubs involved with them originally like Banchory Stonehaven AC with Alisha Rees) and we say well done again to their coaches:
Leon Baptiste (Alisha), Linda Smith (Sarah), Joe McDonnell (Georgina), Andy Young (Erin) and Alex Gibby (David)
