Every athlete who has submitted an Expression of Interest (and is eligible for selection) will be notified by the respective Team Manager, on whether they have been selected for the GB Team (or not) in writing. There will be no verbal notifications. Appeals must be made in writing to the Team Manager who will pass these to the Steering Group for consideration.
