Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

HARRY AIKINES-ARY­EETEY has been cho­sen ahead of Adam Gemili for the third and fi­nal 100 me­tres spot in the Great Bri­tain team at next month’s World Cham­pi­onships in Moscow.

The for­mer world ju­nior cham­pion, who missed out on last sum­mer’s Olympics, joins Dwain Cham­bers and James Dasaolu in the event.

Aikines-Ary­eetey came sec­ond to Cham­bers at Satur­day’s Bri­tish Cham­pi­onships in an A stan­dard time of 10.08 sec­onds, while Gemili

failed to get the stan­dard in win­ning gold at the Euro­pean Un­der-23 Cham­pi­onships in Fin­land.

Gemili, the reign­ing world ju­nior cham­pion, will in­stead race over 200m.

There is no place, though, for Holly Bleas­dale, the Euro­pean in­door pole vault cham­pion who has been strug­gling with in­jury.

Olympic hep­tathlon cham­pion Jessica En­nis-Hill is in­cluded in the 60-strong team, while long jumper Greg Ruther­ford has been given longer to prove his fit­ness.
