Sport: It became clear after the British association presented its EC squad on Tuesday evening, writes NRK.

Instead, Great Britain is fielding Adam Fogg and Neil Gourley in the 1500 metres.

Kerr beat Jakob Ingebrigtsen in the Norwegian’s season opener in Eugene at the weekend over one English mile. Then the Briton said that he had not decided whether he would participate in the EC or not.

Ingebrigtsen has criticized his rivals for not competing against him more before the Olympics in Paris. There, Ingebrigtsen is the reigning champion in the 1500 metres, while Kerr took bronze in the exercise in the previous Olympics.

The European Athletics Championships are held in Rome from 7 to 12 June, while the Olympics in Paris start on 26 July.
