Team England has updated its team ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Queensland, Australia following the withdrawal of Danny Talbot and Ben Williams through injury.
The duo have been replaced with Richard Kilty [sprinter] and Sophie McKinna [shot putter].
“Absolutely ecstatic to say I’ve been selected for my second Commonwealth Games!” McKinna wrote via her Twitter handle.
Kilty who had to end his IAAF world indoor championship prematurely due to a slight Achilles problem has recovered in time to take part in the men’s 200m as well as the 4x100m relay, while Sophie McKinna completes the shot put team which includes Rachel Wallader and Amelia Strickler.
Richard Kilty was part of the 4x100m team that won silver for England at the edition of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland whiles McKinna finished fifth in the women’s shot put.
