29 British and Irish men and women are set to go for the NCAA DI Track and Field Championships, starting tomorrow in Eugene. As ever, the standard will be extremely high and we are delighted that such a large number of athletes survived the carnage of the regional qualifying meetings.

Whilst there are a lot of athletes who stand an excellent chance of podium finishes, the two trump cards as far as the Brits go are 2015 world finalist Nick Miller (Hammer) and sub 20 200m man Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake (also competing in the 100m). Both athletes head to Eugene as NCAA leaders and favourites in their events.

See below for a full list of the athletes competing. The four day meeting is structured such that the men compete on Wednesday and Friday, whilst the women follow exactly the same timetable but on Thursday and Saturday. Track events up to 1500m consist of two rounds, whilst all other events are held as straight 24 athlete finals.
