British Athletics has published the selection policies for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games today.

With the Olympic Games being held in Japan between the 24 July and 9 August 2020, and the Paralympic Games following 25 August to 6 September 2020, the criteria has been released for those athletes seeking nomination by British Athletics for selection for Team GB and Paralympics GB.

The ‘main’ trials for the Olympic Games will take place at the British Athletics Championships in Manchester next year at the Manchester Regional Arena, for the first time since 2007.

The Paralympic Games team selection will be conducted in two waves, with wave one nominated on 22 June 2020, and the second wave nominations taking place on 20 July 2020.

The selection policies outline what athletes need to do in order to earn nomination for selection in each and every event and are available to view now alongside FAQ documents at https://www.uka.org.uk/performance/2020-selection-policies/

Athletes and coaches are encouraged to consider the policies early and contact their performance point of contact with any queries as soon as possible.
