Emma Wiltshire, Loughborough’s athletics programme manager, commented on the selections:
“It’s a busy and exciting time for athletics at Loughborough. After an extremely successful cross country campaign, we’re delighted that Loughborough can contribute towards the GB students team for the upcoming World University Cross Country Championships.
“Portugal will provide an excellent opportunity for International competition and hopefully Loughborough students can help bring some medals back to the UK.”
