british athletics selection philosophy - Olympic (2017-2024) and paralympic (2017-2021) programme

These documents have been produced by British Athletics to outline the philosophy for selecting teams for both Olympic and Paralympic programme competitions, throughout the track and field pathway during the Tokyo (2020) and Paris (2024) cycles.
The intention of the philosophies is to provide consistency and clarity in approach to the selection for all British Athletics teams and to allow athletes and coaches to more effectively plan for their future within the sport. There are three key aims of the philosophy which are outlined in the below documents which ultimately guide how we will approach selection in the coming years.
