Four FVO athletes are named in the Great Britain teams for the early international races of the summer, with a fifth on standby. Grace Molloy returns to the fold for the European Championships in Hungary after two years on the US track circuit, and is joined in the GB party by younger brother Peter, who impressed in the trials in April. Chris Smithard is named as the non-travelling reserve for the championship, and must wait his turn.

There's international selection too for two two of the club's young stars. James Hammond and Scarlett Kelly are named in the travelling group for the European Youth Championships in Poland, James in the U18 class for his 4th appearance at this level, while Scarlett will make her debut in the U16 class.

James has a quick turnaround, as, five days after returning from Poland, he's back on the road again, with the venue the Junior World Championships in Czechia, where he's named to the U20 team.

The main focus of attention for the senior athletes though is the World Championships in July, which will be held in Edinburgh, and the first of the trial races will be this weekend at Sprint Scotland in Fife.
