Sarah Omoregie and James Tomlinson will head to Halle

British Athletics has selected Sarah Omoregie (Gareth Lease) and James Tomlinson (Paul Jensen) to compete at the Halle International Throws event on 26 - 27 May. Sarah will throw in the women’s U20 shot put and James in the men’s U20 discus, both are chasing qualifying marks for the IAAF World Junior Championships.  

Sarah has already represented GB in 2018, competing in the Shot at the Liera Throws event in March, where she threw a PB 15m09. And James too is in good form, having thrown a 57m81 PB at the Carmarthen Throws Open in late April.

Peter Stanley, Head of Field & Combined Events at British Athletics commented:

The Halle Competition is a highly rated and a world-renowned event, so I am pleased to once again send a strong team of British throwers. On the eve of a busy summer, this will be a perfect opportunity for our senior and age-group athletes to perform against some of the best competitors on the continent, providing solid preparations for the upcoming months.
