UK Athletics has today announced those athletes selected to represent Great Britain & Northern Ireland at the World Athletics Relays Bahamas 24 on 4-5 May, in the men’s and women’s 4x100m and 4x400m as well as the 4x400m mixed relay.

Amongst the team, Joe Brier (Swansea Harriers) has been selected for the Men’s 4x400m.

Joe Brier reacted:

I am really happy to be picked, it's my first time going to the Bahamas so I am excited to go to a new location and stadium. Personally, I feel like I am in great shape so I am excited to show the rest of the world my current form.


As a relay team, we picked up two medals at the World Championships last year, so going into these world relays we are really confident in our ability and want to get the job done whilst making sure we qualify for the Olympics and hopefully come away with some medals aswell!

Rhys Williams, Pathway Lead and National Talent Development Coordinator for Sprints/Jumps/CE at Welsh Athletics shared:

It is great to see one of our Welsh athletes representing Great Britain at the World Athletics Relays Championships. It is reflection of the dedication and hard work from both athlete and coach over the last few seasons.


I wish Joe the very best of luck, in what I am sure will be a very successful season for him.

UKA’s objective for the World Athletics Relays Bahamas 24 is to qualify all relay teams for the Paris Olympic Games. Following a highly successful campaign at Budapest in 2023 where GB & NI won medals in four out of five relay finals, UKA Olympic Head Coach Paula Dunn is aiming to secure places in all five Paris events:

The GB & NI team selected is incredibly strong and we are heading to Nassau to secure those vital Paris Olympic slots.


The performances in Budapest last summer were fantastic but we know each year the other nations are working harder and harder on their relay programmes. We cannot take anything for granted and we are going there with a clear aim to put us on the road to Paris.
