Kent will be well represented at the IAAF World Junior Championships with four women chosen in the final GB squad for the trip to Oregon later this month.
It was announced on Tuesday morning that Bobby Clay of Invicta East Kent AC will run the 1,500m after a strong showing in a junior race at the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, last week.
The Wingham star joins Blackheath & Bromley sprint sensation Dina Asher-Smith, 18, who will run the 100m and 200m in Eugene - the home of Nike and known as 'Tracktown' - as well as the 4x100m relay, having broken the British junior 100m record in Germany last Saturday.
Asher-Smith’s B&B teammate Shannon Hylton, 17, is included in the squad to run the 200m and the relay, while her twin sister Cheriece is in both the 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams.
A 46-strong GB team will travel to the event, held in north-west USA from July 22-27.
