The 2015 British half-marathon champion replaces Susan Partridge for the event in Amsterdam
Jessica Coulson has been added to the British team for the half-marathon Team Cup at the European Championships in Amsterdam, Netherlands, British Athletics has announced.
Coulson, the 2015 British half-marathon champion, replaces Scotland’s Susan Partridge, who British Athletics says has withdrawn from the event, taking place from July 6-10, due to “fitness concerns”.
“I am grateful for this opportunity and excited to compete at my first major summer championships,” said Coulson.
“I hope to put in a great performance for the team in Amsterdam and I wish Susan all the best with her return to full fitness.”
The full British squad for the European Championships will be announced following the Olympic trials on June 24-26.
