Top Scots are in action in America over this weekend with the New Balance Indoor GP taking place in Boston on Sunday.

Andy Butchart returns to the track and that will be in an intriguing showdown with Jake Wightman over 3000m. Jake, pictured above, clocked 7:50.97 for 3000m in Sheffield last month.

Guy Learmonth is in the 800m and Erin Wallace races over 1500m.

We wish these athletes and their coaches all the very best as the indoor competition gathers pace.


Athletics Weekly BUCS preview

Megan Keith is among the Scots preparing to compete at the British Unis XC Champs in England this weekend.

The BUCS cross country is always a popular event and Scottish university and college clubs have performed well in recent years.

European U20 champion Megan will lead a strong Edinburgh Uni Hare and Hounds team and the Stirling Uni men’s team could also do well with the likes of Hamish Hickey and Alastair Marshall in their ranks.

The event takes place on Saturday at Horsenden Hall in Middlesex.

Good luck to all the Scottish teams making the journey south and indeed to Scottish athletes from across Britain who are competing at BUCS.
