Northern Ireland & Ulster Team – Manchester International

 

The 2021 event will be held in Sport City, Manchester, on Wednesday 18th August 2021.

 

Northern Ireland & Ulster Teams:

Purpose – The purpose of this competition, within the context of the Athletics NI Performance Pathway, is to prepare athletes for future international competition and work towards creating sustainable success.

Places per events –We aim to select one male and one female per event, dependent upon standards achieved and the overall team size. See standards table below.

Team Size - We will send an estimated team of 36 athletes and therefore athletes will be compared across events and genders using power of 10 senior rankings and percentage of standards achieved. Relay teams will be largely made up of athletes selected for individual events

Expression of Interest – Athletes are asked to complete the expression of interest by 18th July to inform the selection and logistics planning process.
