Olympic hammer finalist Sophie Hitchon is among the first wave of athletes to be selected for the Great Britain and Northern Ireland squad for the European U23 Championships.

After setting a new personal championship record of 69.54m at the England Athletics U23 competition in Bedford last weekend, the 21-year-old will now compete in Tampere, Finland, between July 10th and 14th in a bid to improve on her bronze two years ago.
