#TokyoTwelve! Event schedule for Scots at the Olympics

#TokyoTwelve: Strong Scottish selection within GB for Olympics 

The Olympics are upon us and the athletics action is waiting for the gun to go off!

We feel everyone within athletics in Scotland is thrilled at the prospect of watching events in Japan and checking on the progress of our #TokyoTwelve within Team GB and Ni.

It’s a great moment for these athletes and their families and coaches and a huge achievement to be competing at the Olympic Games.

In terms of Scottish representation, only once in the past 11 versions of the Games has there been a bigger Scottish cohort in the British team (15 athletes in Rio in 2016) – taking us back to 1972 in Munich when a dozen were also selected.

We send our very best wishes to all involved – athletes, coaches, families and indeed the clubs who helped develop these athletes – and reiterate our congratulations.

Heats are largely during the night (our time) with finals during the morning or early afternoon.
