Sport: The Relay WC is organized in the capital Nassau on 4-5. May.

Final withdrawal and stage distribution will take place later. Four of those selected will naturally make up the team in the end.

These are the six selected by the Norwegian Athletics Federation:

Josefine Tomine Eriksen (Sem), Astri Ayo Lakeri Ertzgaard (Tjalve), Amalie Iuel (Tjalve), Henriette Jæger (Aremark), Linn Oppegaard (Moss), Elisabeth Slettum (Skjalg).

Amalie Iuel opened the season with 54.89 in the 400 meter hurdles in Nairobi at the weekend and claimed the EC qualification in the first attempt. She was also only four hundredths behind the Olympic requirement.

Henriette Jæger set a Norwegian indoor record in the 400 meters with 51.05 in February. Lakeri Ertzgaard ran in 52.89 and set a personal best during the Kip Keino Classic in Nairobi on Saturday.
