Danvers gives up summer dream to focus on Commonwealth glory

24 June 2010

UKA today announced that Olympic Bronze medallist Tasha Danvers will not compete at this summer’s SPAR European Championships, but will instead set her sights on competing at the Commonwealth Games in October.

Tasha Danvers, now based at Lee Valley Performance Centre has confirmed that her schedule is now geared towards this year’s Commonwealth Games.

She will therefore not be competing at the Aviva European Trials and National Championships in Birmingham this weekend, she said:

“Following a frustrating 2009 affected by injury, I am determined to get back to my best but that has to be done with a focus on what's best to achieve longer term goals and that means missing the European Champs.

“London 2012 is a massive motivation for me and I’m certainly not done yet! I have been through a lot of changes over the last 18 months, now I’m back in London which is my home town.

“I have decided that unfortunately the European Championships just come too early for me, so I’m aiming for the Commonwealths and will be back racing soon.”
