WIGAN’S Jenny Meadows has missed out on the final cut for the Team GB Olympic selection.

The 2009 world bronze medallist has been plagued by injury all season, but was hoping to get the nod having achieved the qualifying standard.

However, Lynsey Sharp is the sole selection for the 800m - a decision Meadows has already said she’ll appeal against.

Wigan-based Holly Bleasdale has, as expected, made the cut in the pole vault where she will be one the favourites for gold.
