Proctor added to team for London

Tuesday 25th July 2017

British long jump recorder-holder and 2015 world silver medallist Shara Proctor joins the team along with European silver medallist Jazmin Sawyers after British Athletics accepted official invites from the IAAF. World indoor medallist Lorraine Ugen had already secured her spot in the squad.

Proctor had been unable to compete at the British trials after suffering a concussion in a car accident the day before, while she was also forced to miss the Müller Anniversary Games through injury but returned to competition at the Lausanne Diamond League.

“Shara is a world medallist and was one jump away from being world champion in 2015,” said British Athletics performance director Neil Black. “If she can put a good series of jumps together there is no reason why she can’t once again be challenging for the podium.
