British Athletics Championships this weekend in Birmingham

The best of Britain will descend on Alexander Stadium, Birmingham from 24-26 June as they compete for the prestigious honour of being crowned British champion as well as a place on the British Athletics team for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The Alexander Stadium has played host to some memorable British Championships moments over the years and 2015 was no different as ‘finals day’ on the Sunday saw thrilling victories for Dina Asher-Smith, who set a new championship record in the women’s 100m, sub-10 man Chijindu Ujah in the men’s 100m and Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford.

Over 600 athletes from across the country will compete over the three days and more than 20 finals will be settled in a scintillating three hour programme on the Sunday.
