Undergraduate student joins GB team for the IAAF World Championships

David Omoregie

Along with 16 other Loughborough representatives, David Omoregie has been named in the Great Britain team for August’s IAAF World Championships in London! 

An Economics with Accounting undergraduate student, David competed a great run that ensured he was the only Brit to make the final at Sunday’s Anniversary Games, which took place in the same stadium as the World Championships will be contested in, which ultimately sealed his place.

He said of the incredibly exciting opportunity: 

"I’m really happy to be selected for the World Champs; it’s a home championship and you don’t know how many times as an athlete you’re going to get to compete in a championship in your own nation. From last year and missing out on the Olympics by a week it’s always been in my mind to make the team and it gave me a lot of drive to work really hard through the winter and it’s a relief to know that hard work has paid off."

“Now I just want to go to London, go out and enjoy the experience of my first World Championships, learn a lot of things I can take forward in the future, but most importantly enjoy it.”

Congratulations to David and all of the other Loughborough representatives on such a brilliant achievement already!
