World Youth champion Williams among those added by Britain to Moncton squad

Jack Meredith and David Guest have been named in a 45-strong Aviva Great Britain and Northern Ireland team in the second and final wave of selections for the IAAF World Junior Championships in Moncton, Canada (19-25 July).

Meredith leads the world junior lists for the sprint hurdles, with a UK junior record holder over 110mH (13.32sec) following a brilliant victory at the Samsung Diamond League under-20 event in Oslo.

Decathlete Guest, the England Combined Events Champion, leads the global season lists (with the senior implements) courtesy of a 7727 PB achieved in June.

World Youth Triple Jump champion Ben Williams is also named in this second and final draft of selections, and joins double World Youth Champion Jodie Williams and European Junior bronze medallist Sophie Hitchon who were announced in the first wave of selections on 23 June.
