PAUL Blake has been selected to represent Great Britain at next month’s IPC European Championships in Swansea.

The Dorchester athlete will compete in both the T36 100m and 400m as he looks for his first ever gold medal at European level.

Blake, 24, won silver and bronze in the 400m and 800m respectively when the championships were staged in the Netherlands two years ago.

This year’s event takes place at the Swansea University International Sports Village from August 18-23.
