In Sweden, Cameron Fillery reached a new PB in the 110 hurdles semi-finals and clinched the bronze in the finals. The 4 x 400m had Alex Haydock Wilson taking the lead leg, helping to win the silver medal.

The competition also saw Seamus Derbyshire achieve a lifetime best, gaining a time under 51 seconds and going on to win silver in the 400 hurdles. Joshua Lay also won bronze in the junior 1500m.
