FOUR world champions and four Paralympic gold medallists from London have been named in a 40-strong squad to contest next month's IPC athletics world championships in France.

Athletics Australia chairman of selectors Dion Russell said every eligible athlete who had achieved at least one 'B' qualifier had been named in the squad.
