Joy for Rodger but Lally suffers heartbreak again
Seb Rodger has been selected for the Great Britain team for next month's World Championships but Jade Lally has been controversially left out.
Rodger, from Eastbourne, booked his place in the squad for Moscow after running the A standard for the 400m hurdles in winning a silver medal at the European Under-23 Championships in Finland on Saturday.
He joins defending champion Dai Greene and Rhys Williams as one of three athletes Britain will take in the 400m hurdles.
Lally, from Pease Pottage, was expected to be included in the squad after twice achieving the B standard and winning the trials in Birmingham at the weekend.
The 26-year-old has branded the decision a "joke" after she was informed her omission was due to the fact the selectors didn't think she could finish in the top eight in Moscow.
It is another blow for Lally who was also overlooked for the Olympics last year and the World Championships in 2011 despite possessing the B standard.
