He said: "It’s such a proud moment for me to be selected to compete at my second Commonwealth Games.

"Winning two silver medals in Glasgow 2014 was an incredible experience for me and I’m really excited to get back out there.

"The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games was a fantastic event. It was the first time I won a senior international medal so it’s great to be going back to where it all started.

"I’m looking forward to competing for Team England again and can’t wait to get out to Australia."

Hythe's Jack Green will compete in the 400m hurdles while Tom Bosworth, from Tonbridge, has been selected for the 20km race walk.
