Sheffield-based distance runner Hatti Dean has been picked for the Great Britain and Northern Ireland team for the European Team Championships in Stockholm on June 18 and 19.

Oxford-born Dean, 29, who competes for Hallamshire Harriers, will take part in the 3,000m steeplechase.

Dai Greene will captain the GB side that will include Dwain Chambers.

Greene has been selected for the 400m hurdles while Chambers will line up in the 100m.

Other big names in the team include Phillips Idowu in the triple jump, Helen Clitheroe in the 5,000m, Jenny Meadows in the 800m and Andy Turner in the 110m hurdles.

Chambers, Turner and Greene were all winners last year as the British team claimed a creditable second place.

Gateshead has been chosen to host the 2013 European Team Championships.
