Markovc, based in the United States, rewrote club records when she became the first athlete in Wakefield Harriers' history to hold a senior British record when she competed in the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, in Staten Island, earlier this month - read story here.

And now the 25-year-old is one of the three British female runners who will go for honours in the 3,000m, alongside Swansea's Verity Ockenden and Bracknell's Amelia Quirk, during the championships taking place from March 4 to 7.

Olympic Head Coach at British Athletics, Christian Malcolm, said: “I’m pleased to be selecting such a strong Great Britain and Northern Ireland team for the European Indoor Championships next month. It has been a challenging time for all athletes and coaches recently, but we have seen some incredible performances.

“Of course, we are looking to maximise the number of opportunities to win medals, but it is also about providing opportunities for developing athletes as well as established athletes to achieve a GB&NI vest. We have a real mix in the squad with several young athletes demonstrating their potential in really challenging circumstances. I am really looking forward to seeing how the team perform in Torun."
