Results highlights by Scots on scotstats.net summary

There were top performances on either side of the Atlantic over the weekend.

Sarah Inglis might well be able to lay claim to the headline among the highlights with a superb 5000m run in Portland.

Sarah improved her PB by around 11 seconds to clock a World Championships standard with 15:05.21 in an event where British women are looking very strong.

The Lothian RC athlete has Commonwealth Games standards for Team Scotland in both the 5000m and 10,000m events. Sarahโ€™s 15:05.21 took her sixth on our all-time list.

At the same meet in Portland, Josh Kerr was seventh in his 800m race with 1:46.95.

Still in endurance, but back in Britain, the Watford BMC meet once again saw top performances by Scots.

Ben MacMillan of Central AC improved his 1500m PB to 3:40.60 to get inside the Birmingham 2022 qualifying mark for the second time.

At 500m, there were good runs by Stuart McCallum at 13:50.44 and Ryan Thomson at 13:54.74 to get inside 14 minutes.

Philippa Millage clocked a W40 Scottish best with 4:23.32 at 1500m and Jenny Selman took third in the top race with a PB run of 4:08.24 (12th all-time).

There were a number of other strong runs (apologies if one or two missed here) including at 1500m Duncan Robinson and Tendai Nyabadza at 3:48.

Our top two menโ€™s high jumpers were in great form over the weekend.

David Smith cleared 2.23 in France to land a Birmingham 2022 qualifying standard for the third time and followed up his recent 2.25.

The following day, in Germany, Will Grimsey cleared 2.24 to win his event in Essen.
