After a recent follow up on Tom’s success this year; setting a 10k British record in March he went onto securing a qualifying time in Switzerland in this summer’s World Athletics Championships in Beijing in August. He has also gained the Olympic qualifying time for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro next year. He additionally went on to race for Great Britain at the European Race Walking Cup, finishing 16th where he clocked not only his 5th World Champs qualifying time, but also his 2nd Olympic Games qualifying time.

Furthermore, after winning the British Athletics Trial for the World Championships in Bedford, Tom has secured his place for the British team for this summer’s World Championships in Beijing. This would be his first ever World Championships and the final and most vital step towards the Olympics next year. He goes there with the hope of getting close to the top 20 in the world.

His race will be viewable on the BBC on the 23rd August 2015. At approximately 8:30am (Chinese time).

In addition, before the World Championships Tom will be racing at the British Athletics World Trials; over 5k. He has broken the 5k British record twice before, so we are all hoping it will be 3rd time lucky.

Tom recently featured on a Leeds Television show- talking about interesting people in the Leeds community. Replays of this can be found through his website www.tombosworth.com.

Finally, he will be going off to Japan for altitude training prior to the 20k race in Beijing. He will be blogging throughout as his journey progresses.
