Libby Clegg named in GB Para-athletics squad for World Championships

British Athletics are welcoming back old faces and introducing the new, following the announcement of an all-star selection for the World Para Athletics Championships 2019 which will be held in Dubai from Nov 7-15.
Joining the team is Libby Clegg, taking on the T11 200m. After suffering from severe mental health issues and recovering from the difficult birth of her son, Edward, the world-record breaking athlete has made a return to the sport. 
Sheer determination after her caesarean section meant that the 29-year-old was training just four months after Edward’s arrival and made the team in five. 
“I didn’t think in a million years I’d be on the team five months post baby!” Clegg posted on Twitter. 
This will be her first major championships for Great Britain since 2016. Hopes are that this is the first step in her sprint toward victory at the Tokyo Paralympic Games next year.
