Newbury hammer thrower Charlotte Payne selected for British team
NEWBURY hammer thrower Charlotte Payne has been selected to represent Britain U20 at the Loughborough International this weekend.
The action will take place on Sunday, May 23, and with both the European and World Athletics U20 Championships taking place this summer, the competition provides an excellent opportunity for athletes to gain valuable experience in a competitive environment in the prestigious British vest.
In the women’s hammer, Payne has been selected having already secured the world and European U20 standards.
Payne, who is part of the British Athletics Futures Academy Programme, will be hoping to build on her seventh place at the European U20 Championships in 2019.
Last year she improved her personal best to 63.92m at the Müller British Athletics Championships.
The event, which gets underway at 11:00am on Sunday, will see teams from Wales, Scotland and Loughborough Students also fielding squads with guests also competing in the individual and relay races.
Meanwhile, Team Kennet had the three Kuijtens brothers compete in the Milton Keynes duathlon on Sunday.
Ethan finished 7th and was the 6th male overall in the u13 age group, Reuben was 15th and the 13th male in Tri Star 2, while Josh was 4th and the 3rd male in Tri Star 1.
