Eilidh Child is one of seven Scots named in the British team for next month's World Athletics Championships in Moscow.

The 400m and 400m hurdles runner has set repeated Scottish records this season.

Eilish McColgan, daughter of Olympic silver medallist Liz, will race in the 3000m steeplechase, with marathon runner Susan Partridge also named.

Chris O'Hare, Jamie Bowie, Laura Muir and Kirsten McAslan are also included.

O'Hare (1500m) is joined by Bowie (4x100m and 4x400m relay) in the GB squad.

Muir (800m) and McAslan (4x400m relay) have also secured spots in the team for the trip to Moscow.

Britain's new sprint star James Dasaolu has also earned a place in the 60-strong team.

However, Steph Twell has missed out despite winning the 5000m at the British Championships.
