Belgrade schedule for six Scots

Thursday 2nd March 2017

Six of our top Scottish athletes are in Belgrade this week with Team GB and NI determined to make an impact on the European Indoor Champs.European Indoor Champs.

And the prospects for medals and final places look bright with the trio of Laura Muir, Eilish McColgan and Steph Twell in the 3000m, Eilidh Doyle lined up for the 400m and the 4 x 400m Relay, Allan Smith in the high jump and Guy Learmonth to race the 800m.

Muir is doubling up  in the 1500m and 3000m, with heats taking place on Friday, but McColgan has now decided against taking on the 1500m and will focus on her 3000m bid.
