Scottish athletes head for Manchester later this week for the Muller British Champs – with BBC TV coverage on Friday and Saturday.
The likes of Neil Gourley, Jake Wightman, Kirsty Law, Nick Percy, Chris Bennett and Allan Smith will hope to beat a path to the podium at the Regional Arena.
We make it just over 40 Scots set to be involved and there is a strong Para element with competition opportunities for the GB athletes Maria Lyle, Alexander Thomson, Sammi Kinghorn and Stef Reid.
Gourley and Wightman, stars in Doha last year when three Scots made the World Champs 1500m final, are in different events this time – with Neil defending his 1500m title and Jake stepping into what looks like some seriously tough competition in the men’s 800m.
