It’s always good to see Scottish athletes being selected for international events and there were welcome selections for a throws event in Germany later this month.
Hammer duo Mark Dry and Chris Bennett will head for Halle on May 26-27 for International Throws Event.
Mark, of course, is awaiting news on a hip operation following on from his bronze medal success at Gold Coast 2018 but will now represent Scotland at Loughborough and then GB and NI in Germany. Chris for his part is looking to recover quickly from his Commonwealth Games disappointment.
Congratulations to both guys and their families and coaches on another chance to represent Britain and compete on the international stage.
Here’s details on the British Athletics website
