All Scottish Records listed on scotstats.net

If it feels like Scottish Records have been tumbling constantly throughout 2018 – so far- then the assumption is backed up by statistics.

And scottishathletics are grateful to our Records Committee, which works closely with the Track and Field Commission, for keeping up with the flow of top performances by athletes of all ages.

A whole host of those have now been through the verification process and were duly ratified by the scottishathletics Board on June 11.

Beth Dobbin rightly commanded headlines when she broke Sandra Whittaker’s Women’s National 200m Record with a run of 22.84 for Edinburgh AC in the British Women’s League – some 34 years after Sandra’s run at the 1984 Olympics.

That’s just one of almost 20 new Records now rubber-stamped and confirmed on the scottishathletics ‘books’ (with a second run of 22.83 by Beth in Stockholm now ‘in the pipeline’).

The National Women’s 4 x 400m Relay Record is the other main Senior mark to be achieved over the past few months.

Alisha Rees, the GB Junior international, broke her own National U20 Record for 100m on the same day as club-mate Dobbin in that UK Women’s League match at Eton.

At age group level, the likes of Meghan Porterfield, Scott Brindley, Keira Waddell and Ellie O’Hara have all impressed in throws, CE and jumps.

The Records booklet on our History section of this site will be up-dated in due course to reflect these ratification decisions.

Record-breakers! 20 new marks ratified in March
