Indoor international opportunities for 2019 – selection policies announced

England Athletics will once again be taking England teams to a number of indoor international fixtures. These events include teams competing in Vienna, Bratislava, the Reykjavik and the Cardiff Under 20 international.

These competitions are to provide international opportunities for the best athletes in England at the point of selection and for athletes judged to have the potential to represent England at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The dates of these competitions are:

  • Vienna - 26th January 2019
  • Bratislava - 27th January 2019
  • Reykjavik Games - 3rd February 2019
  • Cardiff ‘Under 20’ - 3rd March 2019

England Athletics Teams & Competitions Manager Andy Day said, “We know that these competitions are highly valued by the athletes. It is a great honour to represent your country and these meetings also provide our athletes important opportunities to develop and learn. We recognise that the sense of pride in an athlete representing England is something that is also shared by the club mates and training partners of those competing, and that seeing athletes competing in these events also gives something for other athletes to aspire to.

“I would encourage athletes and their coaches to ensure they have read the selection policies and made the relevant expressions of interest.”

All events will be considered separately, a maximum of two athletes can be selected for Vienna and Bratislava and one per event for Reykjavik and the Cardiff Under 20 meet.

Selection for the Senior meets will be made on Tuesday 15th January 2019

Selection for the Cardiff Under 20 International will be confirmed on Tuesday 26th February 2019.
