First GB senior chance for Cameron Chalmers as University of Bath athletes get Euro Team call

15 June 2017

University of Bath sporting scholar Cameron Chalmers has earned his first senior British Athletics selection for this month’s European Athletics Team Championships in Lille Metropole, France.

The Sports Performance student, supported by a Thompson Education Trust Scholarship, is joined in the squad by fellow University-based athletes Emily Diamond and Eilidh Doyle.

Cameron, coached by James Hillier, has been selected in the men’s 4x400m squad along with Delano Williams, Rabah Yousif, Jarryd Dunn and Matthew Hudson-Smith after an excellent season in which he has already broken a 17-year-old BUCS Outdoor Athletics Championship 400m record.
