Ten Scottish athletes are with the GB and NI team for the Euro U20 Champs in Tallinn this week.
This is a record in terms of Scottish representation on at British team at the European Juniors, since that particular championship began back in 1970.
We send our best wishes to the following athletes (and their coaches) as well as all with the GB and NI team in Estonia: Bera Ajala, Alyson Bell, Kirsty Costello, Kane Elliott, Joe Ewing, Megan Keith, Alastair Marshall, Reuben Nairne, Duncan Robinson and Brodie Young.
It is a brilliant moment for these young athletes individually and collectively, of course, but also reflects well on their coaches and support teams and the clubs involved in their development over a number of years.
Updates on performances by our Scottish athletes will feature across our social media channels from Thursday to Sunday.
