The Emirates Arena in Glasgow is the place to be this Saturday for hundreds of athletes in our track and field community.
It’s the FPSG National Open and no fewer than 780 athletes have put their names forward for start-lists in the traditional opening event of the FPSG Indoor Season.
This event is always one of the most popular of the year with the open graded format usually a contributory factor to good performances and working well for athletes at all ages and stages.
And there are some big names expected on Saturday with Eilidh Doyle, after that 200m race last Friday evening at the GAA Miler Meet, ready to take on her first 400m of 2019 – with a view to the British Champs next month and the trials for the Glasgow 2019 European Indoors.
Sol Sweeney will race in the 1500m at the FPSG National Open as he too chases a good time while his training partner, Jemma Reekie, is lined up for the 800m at the Emirates.
The men’s 200m looks competitive while the field events lists include Chuxx Onyia, Miraji Ahmed and Calum Henderson as well as a trio of Gold Coast 2018 high jumpers in Allan Smith, David Smith and Nikki Manson.
