2004

Dani Barnes has been automatically selected for the Junior 6km Race at the World Cross-country in Brussels, having finished in the top 10 at the Spar European Cross Country Championships in Edinburgh in December.

Preview:1500m Silver medallist at last summer’s European Junior Championships who earned automatic selection for Brussels by finishing ninth to help Norwich Union GB retain the Junior Women’s Team title at the Spar European Cross Country Championships in Edinburgh in December, has been picking up tips from her training mate, Zoë Jelbert. “Zoe’s brilliant,” says Barnes, who was 27th in the Junior Women’s race at last winter’s World Cross Country Championships in Lausanne. “She’s always passing on a bit of advice.”

“I’m not flying at the moment, but I am running well. Everything in training is going as planned, but the main aim for this year is the World Juniors in the summer. Brussels will tell me exactly how the bulk of my winter training is going. I think I’m about as fit as last year, but it will be nice to see exactly where we are.”
