CROYDON athletics stars James Dasaolu and Martyn Rooney have been named as part of a 60-strong team for the IAAF World Championships in Moscow, Russia, on August 10-19. The news comes on the back Dasaolu's phenomenal 100m performance in Birmingham at the Sainsbury's British Championships last weekend where he record 9.91 seconds – and now he's the fourth fastest in the world ahead of Usain Bolt. In the battle for places in the men's 100m, Dasaolu, coached by Steve Fudge, will be joined by Harry Aikines-Aryeetey (Rana Reider) to join Championship winner Dwain Chambers (Reider) on the flight to Moscow, and Adam Gemili (Michael Afilaka) lines up alongside James Ellington (Reider) over 200m. British Athletics Performance Director Neil Black said: "The team selected for GB & NI are a mix of defending champions, potential medallists, finalists and some really exciting young talents that we see as future medallists. "Last weekend's Sainsbury's British Championships was a brilliant stage for the world trials, and we saw some world class performances. "It gave the selectors a real opportunity to see the athletes in championship mode and we were not disappointed. "A year on from the Games and it is great to look forward to Moscow with the selected team, as we take our first steps in the build up towards Rio 2016 and London 2017."MEN'S SELECTION 100m: Harry Aikines Aryeetey (Rana Reider); Dwain Chambers (Reider); James Dasaolu (Steve Fudge); 200m: James Ellington (Reider); Adam Gemili (Michael Afilaka); Delano Williams (Neil Harrison); 400m: Nigel Levine (Linford Christie); 800m: Andrew Osagie (Craig Winrow) Michael Rimmer (Norman Poole); 1500m: Chris O'Hare (Steve Gulley); 5000m: Mo Farah (Alberto Salazar); 10,000m: Farah (Salazar); 110mH: William Sharman (Jerzy Maciukiewicz); 400mH: Dai Greene (Malcolm Arnold), Sebastian Rodger (Stephen King) Rhys Williams (Adrian Thomas); 3000mSC: James Wilkinson (Philip Townsend); Long Jump: TBA; High Jump: Robbie Grabarz (Fayyaz Ahmed); Pole Vault: Steve Lewis (Dan Pfaff); Discus Throw: Brett Morse (Andy Brittan); Decathlon: Ashley Bryant (Ian Grant); 4x100m: Aikines Aryeetey (Reider); Chambers (Reider); Dasaolu (Fudge); Ellington (Reider); Gemili (Afilaka); Richard Kilty (Christie) Andrew Robertson (Daniel Cossins); Deji Tobais (Jonas Tawiah Dodoo); 4x400m: Michael Bingham (George Williams); Jamie Bowie (Piotr Haczek) Luke Lennon Ford (Christie); Levine (Christie); Martyn Rooney (Reider); Conrad Williams (Christie); Delano Williams (Harrison).
