England Athletics Talent Hubs supporting athletes on the international stage

The summer season has well and truly started as all eyes have been on the Para Worlds in Kobe and the European Championships in Rome. The British contingent have made some very impressive statements at this early point in the season, with much more excitement still to come over the summer as they battle for spots on the Olympic and Paralympic squads. Making the world stage is without doubt an incredible achievement, and we love to support the English athletes as they run, jump, throw and push against the very best in their field. However, we are also passionate about celebrating those behind the scenes; the clubs, personal coaches, support teams, and ourselves as the membership and development body who have all contributed to their journey to success.
