The IAAF World Athletics Championship is one of the biggest and best sporting events of the year and the Norwich Union Great Britain and Northern Ireland team is proud to be part of it.


There is no doubt that competition in Osaka will be tough, but I think we have picked the strongest team possible to compete at the highest level.


As part of our drive forward at the top level of our sport, we have made a number of refinements.


We have put in place a harder selection policy, which coupled with an extremely focused support system should ensure a team which is ready to give its best in competition.


As a result, our team for this year’s World Championship is made up of highly competitive athletes with much promise for future success.


Each individual in Osaka will have a clear focus and a set of targets for their long term development – both for this World Championship in its own right and as a stepping stone for the future.


I would like to take this opportunity to wish every athlete in the team the very best luck for the World Championships and the future.



Dave Collins, UK Athletics Performance Director.
