Five Kent athletes are set to take on the cream of British athletics talent this weekend as they bid to earn spots in the team for next month's European Indoor Championships.
Olympic hurdler Jack Green, from Hythe, hopes to put a shoulder injury behind him to race in the flat 400m at the UK Indoor Championships at Sheffield on Saturday and Sunday.
A spot in the 4x400m relay team is also within the 21-year-old's (pictured) sights.
Sittingbourne's Sean Molloy, a 17-year-old Westlands School pupil will go in the heats of the 800m on Saturday afternoon (4.05pm).
Molloy, who runs for Tonbridge AC and competed in the heats at the World Junior Championship in Barcelona last July, won his first title of the year at the South of England under-20 Indoor Championships at Lee Valley last month.
If he is to earn a spot on TeamGB for the European Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden, next month, he will need to secure a top-two finish in Sunday afternoon’s finals and will likely need to improve his PB by up to four seconds to meet the selection criteria.
