GB Junior Team For Loughborough

13 May 2010

2009 World Youth champions Jodie Williams (coach: Mike McFarlane) and Ben Williams (coach: John Crotty) are included in a strong Aviva Great Britain & Northern Ireland team for the McCain Loughborough International on Sunday 23 May.

The pair, who have already enjoyed gold medal winning performances on the global stage in the 100m/200m and triple jump respectively, will commence their 2010 IAAF World Junior Championships qualifying campaign alongside 2008 World Juniors 100m silver medallist Ashlee Nelson (coach: Michael Afilaka) and 2008 Commonwealth Youth Games hammer champion Sophie Hitchon (coach: Derek Evely), the European Junior Championships bronze medallist and GB junior record holder with an impressive 65.83m season opener in April, a UK lead mark in 2010.

Kevin Tyler, UKA’s Strategic Head of Coaching and Development and Aviva GB & NI Team Leader for the IAAF World Junior Championships in Canada later this summer, said: “The Loughborough International is an excellent opportunity for our juniors to compete in a high quality match against senior counterparts early in the season. While many of the athletes and their coaches have been fortunate enough to experience international competition in past seasons this event marks the start of an important summer of competition as they work towards their ultimate target – the IAAF World Junior Championships.”
