The Belgian Athletics today announced a wide selection for the European Athletics Championships in Munich. In total, the Belgian delegation consists of over 48 individual athletes and his four relay teams.

Belgium has selected 48 athletes, sending its largest delegation to the European Championships since the European Championships in Brussels in 1950, when 50 athletes were selected.

The most striking name in the Belgian selection is Nafi Thiam. The heptathlon’s brand-new world champion previously indicated he had doubts about her participation in the European Championships, and now that she’s on the list, it looks like she’ll be traveling to Germany after all.

Belgian Tornados still has to fill the last two spots. Kevin and Dylan Bollie, Alexander Doom and Julian Watlin.

At the last European Championships held in Berlin in 2018, Belgium won six medals. This year’s European Championship starts on his August 15th and ends on August 21st.
