England team announced for Northern Ireland and Ulster Combined Event Championships

England Athletics are delighted to announce the eleven athletes who will represent England at the upcoming Northern Ireland and Ulster Combined Event Championships.

Athletes will compete in decathlon, heptathlon and octathlon during the Championships, which will take place at Mary Peters Athletics Track in Belfast on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 September.

Darren Ritchie, Event Group Lead for Jumps and Combined Events at England Athletics, said:

“We are pleased to announce that England Athletics will be sending a team of combined event athletes and coaches to Belfast, Northern Ireland to compete in the Northern Ireland and Ulster Combined Events Championships on 3/4 September 2022.

Congratulations to the athletes, their coaches, and clubs on their selection, and we look forward to them performing at this competition opportunity who, for some, will be putting on the England vest for the first time!

This competition is a great stepping stone in an athlete's journey, giving them the opportunity to learn and develop some of the key skills and behaviours required as they aspire to represent England Athletics and GB&NI at future age group and senior major events, and we wish everyone involved in this weekend all the best.”
