With the Müller British Athletics Championships fast approaching, the track and field world continues to clamour with excitement as Britain’s best prepare to battle it out in Birmingham for qualification for the Athletics World Cup and European Athletics Championships.

This being said, just who is destined to impress in Birmingham on the 30th June to the 1st July weekend and who is flying under the radar that may just provide the shock of the tournament?

We take a look at some of the English stars heading to the Alexander Stadium this weekend.

Morgan Lake

The high-jump specialist will be hoping to continue her scintillating form, with the 21-year-old hoping to qualify for both the inaugural Athletics World Cup and the European Championships.

Lake will be heading to Birmingham just a few months after she claimed silver on her Commonwealth debut in April.

The two-time British champion will be hoping to retain her title for a third time, can she follow up her success on the Gold Coast with a victory at the Alexander Stadium?

Andrew Pozzi

The current indoor World and European Champion in the 60m hurdles, Andrew Pozzi can add the gloss to his new titles acquired in March by clinching his third British title in Birmingham.

Competing in the 110m hurdles in 2012 and 2016, Pozzi emerged victorious on both occasions, setting times of 13.41 and 13.31 seconds, respectively, the Stratford-born athlete will be hoping to shave a little more time off his 2018 speed and collect his third national title.

Zharnel Hughes

Part of the sensational 4x100m relay team that secured a dramatic gold for Team England in April, Zharnel Hughes is no stranger to success and is the definition of a man in form.

Hughes has stacked up several notable accolades in 2018, the most impressive of the bunch his 9.91-second run earlier this month which earned him victory in the Kingston JN Racers Grand Prix in Jamaica. This scorching time was a personal best for the 22-year-old, and was also the then-quickest time recorded in a 100m event this year, a record which is now fourth fastest in the world in 2018.

Officially the joint-second-fastest Briton in history, the 200m specialist will be expected to continue his scintillating form and claim a second British title.  

Holly Bradshaw

Four-time British Champion Holly Bradshaw will be hoping to make it five from five attempts as she looks to Birmingham to defend her title for a fourth consecutive time.

The 26-year-old pole vaulter made her Commonwealth Games debut at the Gold Coast and pushed the pack right until the death, where she finished in fourth with yet another 4.60m clearance.

If Bradshaw can remain her typically consistent self and clear the dizzy heights of 4.60m and above, she will be a large favourite to be a five-time British Champion.
