ATHLETICS: England and Clarke selected for European Championships
12:29pm Tuesday 15th July 2014 in Sport
OXFORDSHIRE’S Hannah England and Lawrence Clarke have today been named in the Great Britain & Northern Ireland team for next month’s European Championships in Zurich.
But fellow county athlete Nathan Douglas (Oxford City) misses out after failing to achieve the triple jump qualifying distance.
Clarke, from Christmas Common, was already assured of his place in the 110m hurdles, having finished second in the trials and run the qualifying time.
But Oxford City’s England had to wait on the selectors for her spot in the 1,500m.
She had the qualifying time, but only came third in the trials.
The championships take place from August 12-17.
