The 2017 season gets off to a flying start for Welshpool shot putter Adele Nicoll next week in the sunshine of Gran Canaria.

She has today been named to represent Great Britain in the Under-23 Women’s Shot Putt at the European Throwing Cup despite only just getting back to full fitness after injury and illness.

The event represents the first chance for throwers to test their shape and technique against top-level international competition before the outdoor season begins in earnest in May.

Earlier this month Adele returned to action with an indoor personal best to take bronze in the Senior British Championships.

“Massive thank-you to everyone in Welsh athletics who has helped me through the last couple of months and for getting me back in a position to start training properly again,” she said. ”There are so many positives moving forwards into the 2017 season.”

She described her selection as “exciting times.”

Adele was recently voted Montgimeryshire Sports Personality of The Year for 2016.
