England Athletics is pleased to announce we will be sending Chris Snook to represent England at the upcoming Korzeniowski Warsaw Race Walking Cup - part of the World Athletics Race Walking Tour. The event takes place on 23 April in Warsaw, Poland and will also incorporate the Polish Championships so a high standard is expected.
Vicky Griffiths, England Athletics Competition and Delivery Manager said, "We are looking forward to competing in the Warsaw Race Walking Cup for the first time!
"It looks to be a great competition and one which in the past has produced great results. Chris (Snook) is in great shape and will be using this event to cement a solid start to the outdoor road season."
Twice Olympian and 21 time national champion Tom Bosworth - who retired last year - make his debut as England Team Manager. No stranger to the England vest himself, he will lend his expertise and experience.
He told us, "I had no intention on leaving the sport when I retired, especially being able to support my event that so often got overlooked or was misunderstood. I represented England many times, and it was often in the that vest that I secured qualifying times for the major championships."
"I hope I can help the next generation of athletes to fulfil their dreams, being named as Team Manager is an honour and I know just how valuable these opportunities are to athletes. This is the perfect place to start giving back to the sport that gave me so much."
"It is fantastic that we have Tom supporting this trip as team staff. Tom has been a great ambassador for the event discipline and we are excited to have him on board to support and guide current and future athletes.
We wish Chris all the best!
