Sporting scholar Aleeya Sibbons earns first senior British Athletics selection for European Team Championships in Poland
The Architecture student, who is supported by a Santander Scholarship, has been selected in the women’s 4x100m relay team for the first division match at the Championships, held in Silesia, Poland on 23-25 June.
Sibbons is one of 11 debutants in the GB&NI squad and her selection comes after she clocked a new 100m personal best of 11.33, within the European qualifying time. She represented her country at U23 level in last month’s Loughborough International, winning the 100m and finishing runner-up over 200m with a new legal PB of 23.82.
