Angry, surprised and disappointed
That's how I felt about the World Championships selections this year. The first time since my debut in 2004 that I have not been selected for an international race that I wanted to run. I didn't have my greatest spring, but I felt that I was in good enough shape to be selected, and to race well in at least the middle and relay. However, the selectors felt otherwise, and so I was left a spectator. In retrospect, I probably wouldn't have chosen to stay in Finland and watch the races, but I wanted to support my girlfriend, and to be perfectly honest - I didn't have anywhere else to go! It was also great to see the super-sprint day for GB.
