Alex Melloy selected for GB at the European Athletics U20 Championship

Alex Melloy will make his GB debut at the U20 European Athletics Championship being held at Tallinn between the 15th and the 18th July. Alex”s selection for the 3000m comes after a string of very strong races this season. Alex tops the U20 UK rankings after setting a new PB at Milton Keynes back in May. Alex faced a tense wait after his 3rd place at the U20 3000m trials at the British Championships to see if he had been selected.

Alex’s selection was confirmed on the 6th July with his kit arriving later that week.

You can follow Alex and his teammates via the European Athletics website which includes a live stream and results, start lists and recordings of all the action. Alex will run in the first heat at 15:05 BST on the 15th July with the first five in each heat plus the next fastest five qualifying for Saturday’s final at 17:05 BST.

We wish Alex all the best and look forward to following his progress in the championships.
