After Great Britain confirmed its group for the 2019 World Championships dina Asher-Smith will choose the 100m and 200m sprint.
Laura Muir will focus instead of include her schedule and the 5,000 m September to 6 October.
Adam Gemili along with Zharnel Hughes will both contest the men’s 100m and 200m sprint.
Heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson is also in the GB squad that is 72-strong.
“Considering that the caliber of performances from British athletes this season, and also the strength in depth we possess in a number of events, finalising the group was far from simple and there were some challenging decisions to make,” explained British Athletics performance director Neil Black.
“In the 72 athletes, now I truly believe we have selected the strongest team potential to compete for awards on the global stage.
“The team is filled with world-class athletes that over the previous two years since we have been hosts in London have shown they belong on the international stage.
“We’ve chosen more women than guys once again to get a major championships.”
Black also stated a”special mention” had to visit Martyn Rooney, that has been chosen in the 4x400m relay squad and is taking a part in his eighth World Championships.

Johnson-Thompson is set to get a gold medal showdown at a repeat of their duel for its gold in Berlin.
Laura Muir is the world’s third 1500m this season but must overcome the men’s 4x100m relay team and a current injury defend the title they won in London two years back in style that is striking that is these.
