After an intense week following a nail biting British Trials, athletes today found out their fate for the London Olympics.
For those athletes who ticked all the boxes in terms of having an A standard and a top 2 position at the Trials, they have been able to rest easy knowing their seat to the Games had been booked.
But the remaining individuals were told that the European Championships in Helsinki was the last chance to prove their form to be worthy of selection and yesterday the selection meeting took place and the team was announced today.
We are so delighted for our athlete Michael Rimmer
who has booked a spot alongside Trials winner, Andrew Osagie, and British heptathlon junior record holder Katarina Johnson-Thompson's
place was also confirmed.
However, it wasn't meant to be for Jenny Meadows
and Steph Twell
. Lynsey Sharp was solely picked for the 800m based on her win at the Trials and silver medal at the Europeans. However she does not hold an A standard which means that only she can be selected alone based on her B standard. Lisa Dobriskey, Hannah England and Laura Weightman have been picked for the 1500m.

Dwain Chambers, James Dasaolu, Adam Gemili
