Joe picked for GB

Thursday 21 January 2010

Cardiff AAC's Joe Thomas has been selected for the Great Britain team to take part in the indoor international in Glasgow's Kelvin Hall on 30th January. Joe will run in his favourite 800m and will be up against teams from the USA, Sweden, Germany and Commonwealth select.

Last year was frustrating for Joe, who is one of Britain's most promising middle distance athletes. After starting the season strongly, he was waylaid by illness but came back with a bang to end the season third on the GB rankings.

With the European Championships and the Commonwealth Games both scheduled for 2010, we wish Joe every success.

His 22nd birthday is on 29th January, the day before his race, so let's hope that he will have something special to celebrate.
