Warburton wins appeal
Ten British athletes were receiving the full details as to why they had not been selected for the London Olympics on Saturday after Wales' Gareth Warburton was the only person to successfully appeal against their omission from the team.
A total of 11 athletes formally appealed after being left out of the 77-strong team initially announced on Tuesday afternoon, with Warburton "over the moon" after his one-page written submission secured his place alongside Andrew Osagie and Michael Rimmer in the 800 metres.
However, Warburton's joy was matched by the anger of sprinter Richard Kilty, who missed out on a place in the 200m, and told BBC Tees Sport: "When the Olympics are on I guarantee I am going to be abroad running faster than every member in the British team just to rub it in their faces."
He added: "I have ancestors from Ireland and that's a route I may go down, to compete for another country. It's been a dream of mine since I was 10 years old to compete in a home Olympics. I feel let down by my governing body."
Kilty is ranked third in Britain over 200m this season, although he has run quicker than James Ellington, whose win in the trials in Birmingham sealed his place on the team.
However, a poor run at the trials meant Kilty was not selected due to a lack of "current form", according to UKA head coach Charles van Commenee when the team was announced.
"I've worked very hard this year. I truly expected I was going. I was 100% certain I was going to get the third spot," Kilty added.
"I got a call off Ed Warner (chair of the appeals panel). It was a really short phone call. He just said 'You've lost your appeal'.
"(There was) not one reason, which I think is really unprofessional. They are the governing body in this country and they didn't give me one reason why I was not selected."
UKA confirmed to Press Association Sport that all 11 athletes were called personally by Warner as soon as the appeal meeting had broken up.
