This was Maisey’s first GB vest and she equipped herself excellently with a tremendous run in the heat to ensure that the GB team qualified for the final.

Middle distance athlete Thomas Keen, also took part in championships. Thomas competed in the 1500m where, unfortunately he suffered a fall and finished in a disappointing 10th place in his heat.

Earlier in the month Julia Paternain also donned a GB vest. Julia was selected for the U23 European Championships where she ran the 10,000m and finished in a credible 6th place.
