Adam Gemili will run the 100m and relay for England at the Commonwealth Games in Australia next year.
The Dartford sprinter is one of 75 athletes heading to the Gold Coast with Team England for the event which runs from April 4-15.
Gemili, 24, a European champion over 200 metres, won silver in the 100m at the last Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.
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.
