Cindy and Yemi Mary selected for Paris Olympics

UK Athletics have announced the GB&NI team for the Olympic Games in Paris. Cindy Sember is selected for her third consecutive Olympics and will race over 100mH. Yemi Mary John is selected as a member of both the mixed and women's 4x400 relay squad.

Sadly, UK champion Phil Norman who just missed the UKAOG qualifying mark when winning the Trials is not selected with UKA turning down his direct invite from World Athletics which is based on his current world ranking. Also surprisingly missing out is Eugene Amo-Dadzie who placed 4th in trials and was expected by most involved with the sport to have been selected as part of the 4x100m relay team.
