British Athletics will send its biggest squad to a major championships in more than a century as it named 102 athletes for August’s European Championships.

The Berlin event is part of a new competition featuring seven sports, the other six taking place in Scotland.

Sprinter Dina Asher-Smith is among seven individual medallists from the 2016 European Athletics Championships.

“This is an important marker on the road to the Tokyo 2020,” said British Athletics chief Neil Black.

“The team is our largest for over 100 years [since the London 1908 Olympics] and we look forward to watching them thrive under the spotlight of a major championships.”
