And top Scot, Nick Percy, is the sole pick in the men’s discus competition.

The team will see Amelia Campbell and Scott Lincoln in action, fresh from competing at this week’s World Indoors  in Glasgow. Both will compete in the shot put competitions.

Ryan Spencer-Jones, Team Leader, said:  ‘This is an important event for our throwers which provides significant experience on the international stage.

‘We have seen some strong results at the event in recent times, and we are pleased to be taking a team with experienced members as well as those continuing their development in the sport. I look forward to seeing how they all perform in Portugal.’
