Congratulations to Tom Mortimer on his first senior Great Britain Vest

Tom Mortimer, who has represented GB U20 at the European and World Championships in the 5000m, has been selected to represent the Great Britain Senior team at the European Nations Super League to be held Chorzow in Poland on the 29th & 30th May. There are 4 European leagues with 42 counties involved. Great Britain are in the elite Super league, with relegation to league 1 for the county who comes last. Great Britain have been runner up twice in the last 12 years but never won the title, in 2019 they were mid table.

Tom is hoping for a strong field and a fast race and of course to finish as high up the field as he can to gain team points. He will also have half an eye on the Commonwealth Games qualification time for Birmingham next year. Tom will prepare by running the 1500m at the Loughborough International on Sunday were he will represent Loughborough University against the 4 home nations and British university teams to fine tune his speed.
