Dobbin said: “I’m so buzzing. This is my second World team now.

"I came into today really nervous because I’ve not been running the times I’ve wanted to yet but my coach has made a plan because we’ve got three championships this year so I’ve kept a lot of the work in my legs.

"It paid off today. I feel like I executed a really good race.”

Olympic and world semi-finalist Dobbin ran 23.04 in Prague earlier this month and finished sixth in the Doha Diamond League in May.
