World Junior Championship Selection Policy Update:
26 May 2006 16:50

The AAA Junior Women's 3000m at Crystal Palace on 28th July will act as final selection for junior athletes in this event.  As with other AAA events the first athlete to finish with the UKA standard will be selected.

However, it is important to note that obtaining a visa for entry to China requires time to process.  Athletes who see the standard as a realistic target are requested to contact Martin Rush, U20 Team Leader, or Pauline Holmes, U20 Teams Department prior to the AAA U20 Championships on 22nd/23rd July to talk through the process.


This process will also affect any other athletes competing on the weekend of 29th/30th July, hence the original selection policy indicating 'the majority of the team will be selected following the AAA U20 and U23 Championships on 22nd/23rd July'.



Mannheim Junior International selection update:


The Mannheim International, Germany, 6th/7th July will be selected on 19th June.  Only athletes eligible for the IAAF World Junior Championships will be selected i.e. those born in the years 1987, 1988, 1989 and 1990.  A small team will be selected with priority given to speed, jumps and throws athletes, who have shown performance making them very strong World Junior Championship prospects.  (Endurance events at Mannheim are paced and experience has shown UK events provide stronger competitive opportunity)


Other Junior International Opportunities:


The Senior Coordinator's for Jumps, Endurance and Throws are seeking to provide additional international competitive opportunities.  Athletes aspiring to this level of competition should make contact with their respective representative.
