Update to the selection panels

We are able to announce the full panels of selectors for 2024. These panels choose the athletes to represent Great Britain at international races.

We are delighted to have been able to attract two well-known and established former WOC and JWOC athletes. Jenny Johnson will sit on the junior selection panel, and Jenny Peel on the senior panel. Both are members of SYO and are active in the development, coaching and support to squads throughout the Performance Programme locally, nationally, and internationally.

Ranald Macdonald has agreed to extend his role as independent scrutineer; a job that sense checks, and if needed challenges, process and fairness-to the senior selections, as well as continuing in this role for the juniors.

Pippa Archer will take her place on both junior and senior panels following her recent appointment as Performance Manager.

We recognise the commitment that these volunteers give back to our sport, and thank them for agreeing to take on these complex and important roles.
