Adam 10.14 is our best 100m for 43 years; Prize pot shares from Seniors

Tuesday 15th August 2023

There was plenty of excitement at Grangemouth over the weekend – and the good news continued elsewhere, too.

Scottish sprinter Adam Thomas came up with a new PB as he clocked 10.14 (+1.7) for the 100m in London.

And that is in fact the best 100m run by a Scot for fully 43 years since Allan Wells posted 10.11 way back in July 1980 for the National Record.

Well done to Adam, his family and coach Laurance Kingsburg.
