The only thing we can sure of is that Mo will perform excellently and our other British 10K athletes will bring up the rear; if that is the basis of selecting the above moderate athletes, just so that we can put them in the British team, so be it. Not much of a point,for me.

I disagree. If they’ve got the qualifying standard and meet the other criteria they should be on the team. Exposure to such high level competition can only be a good thing for athletes’ future development (though this applies less to Jo at her age) and I think there’s great merit in athletes going to these championships and producing a PB. Imagine how small our team would be if we only took potential medalists.
