David Turner (England Team Lead) said:

“It was an honour to lead this team of young athletes and excellent coaches.  Qualifying for, and then performing in, finals is something we’re keen to provide young athletes experience of and this team acquitted themselves well.  I look forward to watching many of this team qualify for age group championships in 2023.  I’d also like to say a huge thank you to the ETC organisers for providing this opportunity”
