Emily Diamond– 400m : Stands out as a Stellar Athletes triumph at the Olympic trials in Birmingham.

Emily’s supreme performance was beautifully timed to perfection as she took control of the race and out classed a strong field to win the race in 51.94. Heading into the Championships as number one  ,Emily took nothing for granted and dominated from the first round to secure her seat to Rio.

Emily was amongst six other athletes who also secured spots for Rio.

Desiree Henry – 200m : She ran a very close race with Dina Asher- Smith, as two hundredths of a second was the difference between the two times – Lynsey Sharp (800m) also ran a tight race leading until the last few steps secured second place, which was enough to seal her plane ticket. Laura Muir and Andrew Butchart both showed why they are the best in their field with magical no.1 performances. Other Rio bound athletes are Shara Proctor (long jump) and Eilish McColgan (5000m).

 

Great Performances
