GB Athletes in action

Women

200m

Desiree Henry seventh in 23.17 - still struggling to get back to where she was before injury

400m

Nicole Yeargin sixth in 51.95

Laviai Nielsen seventh in 52.82

A dream year for Yeargin. A few months ago, no other had heard of her and now she is on her way to the Olympics. A disappointing season for Laviai who had only made the relay squad for Tokyo.

Long jump

Abigail Irozuru second with 6.64. Solid performance with three jumps over 6.50 after struggles with injuries and lack of training facilities during the pandemic.

Men

100m

Adam Gemili fifth in 10.14, his first 100m of the year

200m

Adam Gemili fourth 20.41. Getting sharper. In Tokyo, he will run 200m and relay.

100m hurdles

David King second in 13.49, another good performance for the Tokyo-bound athlete.

Discus

Lawrence Okoye fourth with 64.17 but he managed only 2 legal jumps out of six.

Hammer

Taylor Campbell eighth 73.24m
