The UK Challenge Final was an absolute farce and a complete waste of time and effort, as UKA thought it fine to invite several athletes who had not met the criteria of gaining 4 performances in their event.
This was clearly set out in the rules with the only exception of events such as the steeplechase where opportunities are limited. Therefore to allow athletes in who had only competed in one or two events completely defeated the purpose of the competition.
There was therefore no point in the series whatsoever and the competition should merely have been an open meeting with prize money.
Again it appeared to be a case of favouritism to those athletes who are a part of the UKA clique!
