LONDON — Two Britain’s bright sparks, Tasha Danvers and James Dasaolu will both miss this weekend’s European Team Championships with injury.

Sprinter Dasaolu, who was named in the relay squad for the team championships, will also be out with a hamstring picked up at the IAAF Golden League meeting in Berlin on Sunday.

The 21-year-old pulled up 20m from the line and finished ninth in a race won by Antigua and Barbuda’s Daniel Bailey.

While he is still officially part of the squad, it looks unlikely he will be fit enough to compete.
