- UK Athletics set to reject World Championships invitations
Furious British athletes have accused the national federation of “stealing” their chance to compete at next month’s World Championships, with UK Athletics set to rip up their invitations.
At least 19 British athletes will be told they cannot take their place at the sport’s showpiece event despite qualifying through the world rankings. “UK Athletics make us feel like the shittest athletes in the world,” said Lina Nielsen, Britain’s No 2-ranked 400 metres hurdler. “I feel like I am being robbed.”
