LITTLE GEM SNUBBED AS HARRY GETS 100M CALL ATHLETICS
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.
