London 2012 heroes Nicola Adams, Gemma Gibbons and Jade Jones will be in action on BT Sport this June as the channel broadcasts coverage of the inaugural European Games from Baku, Azerbaijan.
The European Games will be the continent’s first ever major multi-sport event as 50 nations compete across 20 sports over 17 days of action from 12-28 June.
Team GB will be competing in 13 disciplines at Baku 2015, with ten of these taking on extra significance as they offer opportunities to qualify for World Championships - which then, in turn, offer the chance for athletes to secure places at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

A number of familiar names from London 2012 are among the 153 athletes selected by the British Olympic Association to represent Team GB in Baku, including Nicola Adams - the first woman to win an Olympic boxing title.
“It will be great to compete again in the Team GB vest and I am really looking forward to the European Games,” said Adams.
“I have a very good track record in multi-sports events and I hope this will be another enjoyable experience and useful preparation for the Olympics in Rio next year.”
