British Athletics has announced a team of 72 athletes for the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019, which will be held from 27 September – 6 October.
Sprinter Dina Asher-Smith heads to Doha as a triple European champion from 2018 and IAAF Diamond League runner-up this year over 200m while heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson has earned medals at every major championships she has attended since the last World Championships on home soil in London two years ago.
Three of the four men on Britain’s gold-medal-winning 4x100m quartet from the 2017 World Championships – Adam Gemili, CJ Ujah and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake – are on the team for Doha.
European champions Laura Muir, Zharnel Hughes and Matthew Hudson-Smith are also on the team, alongside world indoor champion Andrew Pozzi and European indoor champion Shelayna Oskan-Clarke.
British Athletics will consider any invites for the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 in line with their selection policy.
“In the 72 athletes, I truly believe we have selected the strongest team possible to compete for medals on the global stage,” said BA’s performance director Neil Black. “The team is full of world-class athletes who, over the past two years since we were hosts in London, have proven that they belong on the global stage.
