Adam Clayton, Alyson Bell and Brodie Young
There were some top performances in various locations as the track and field season begins to take share.
Sprinters were very much to the fore with impressive results from Scots in the United States and at BUCS.
*Adam Clayton clocked 10.08 Windy (3.2) for 100m in Texas to become the fifth fastest Scot ever over the distance.
*Alyson Bell took Women’s 100m silver at BUCS with new PB 11.45 – third on all-time list.
*Brodie Young went sub 46 seconds for 400m as he clocked 45.92 for new PB and fourth on all-time list.
Brilliant to see these three athletes (and others) hitting excellent form so far already in 2023 and well done to them and their coaches!
The BUCS Champs concluded on Monday in Manchester with more Scottish medals.
As well as the silver for Alyson Bell mentioned above, we see the following:
Pole Vault: Bronze for Ewan Bradley at 4.58m
Triple Jump: Silver for Henry Clarkson at 14.92m
100 Hurdles: Silver for Jane Davidson in 13.76
2000m Steeplechase: Gold for Sarah Tait in 6:30.43 (third all-time)
Dawn Russell was fourth in the javelin with 44.99m throw that is fifth in our all-time list.
Para medals for Maria Lyle, Freya Howgate, Cameron Thores and Adam Donnachie (throws double)
Well done to all the Scots who competed in Manchester and to their educational institutions and coaches.
