Former European Under-23 champion, Lloyd Hanley-Byron, could represent St. Kitts and Nevis at this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio.

Hanley-Byron, who won the European 400m hurdles title in 2009, according to the IAAF, was officially cleared to represent his new country on 23 April 2016.

The 28-year-old, under his old name – Lloyd Gumbs, was England Under-23 Championships 400m hurdles bronze medal winner in 2007 and Under-20 silver medallist in 2006.
