Unfortunately, just before 'lockdown' Joy Eze had been contacted by UK Athletics to begin the selection process to represent Great Britain at the European Championships. Although disappointed, it has made her even more determined to work hard to gain G.B. selection in the future. Joy has kept up with her training regime, albeit with some changes and modifications.
