More than usual is at stake at this year’s British Indoor Championships, coming as they are immediately before the national selectors decide on their team for the IAAF World Indoor Championships Portland 2016.
Britain's European 100m champion James Dasaolu and world indoor champion Richard Kilty will take on an international line up at the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games that will include 2003 world champion Kim Collins and Commonwealth champion Kemar Bailey-Cole at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in London on 24-25 July.
Ryan Bailey was one of the most familiar faces of the IAAF World Relays, Bahamas 2015, as he anchored the USA to a national record 37.38 earlier this month. He will be hoping to show off his prowess as an individual sprinter in the 100m at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Eugene on Saturday (30).
Great Britain’s European 100m champion James Dasaolu will compete at the 2015 Sainsbury’s Indoor Grand Prix, an IAAF Indoor Permit meeting, in Birmingham on 21 February, the organisers announced on Wednesday (17).
James Dasaolu won the closest ever men’s 100m at an IAAF Continental or World Cup to become the first British winner of this event since Linford Christie completed his World Cup hat-trick in 1994.
Although they were never expected to be in the hunt for overall victory at the IAAF Continental Cup, Marrakech 2014, being the host nation certainly didn’t harm Africa as they got off to a good start on the first day of action in Marrakech on Saturday (13).
The traditional press conference the day before any IAAF Diamond League meeting saw four athletes who had made their mark in Zurich at the European Championships earlier in August take the stage to talk about their achievements in the Swiss city and look ahead to the first of this year’s IAAF Diamond League finals.
Just days after the conclusion of the European Championships, the Letzigrund Stadium is getting ready for yet another athletics highlight on 28 August as Zurich prepares to host the first of two IAAF Diamond League finals.
A triple gold medal haul for Great Britain and a world-leading performance in the decathlon highlighted a wet, windy and unseasonably chilly second day at the European Championships in Zurich on Wednesday (13).
Katarina Johnson-Thompson has set her sights on the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland, next month after a spectacular weekend at the British Athletics Indoor Championships in Sheffield where she broke the national high jump record on Saturday (8) and added a championship record to win the long jump on Sunday (9).
