Jasmin Paris greets her daughter, Rowan, after the Spine Race record run
Three Scots are heading to the IAU/ITRA Trail World Champs in Portugal this summer in a 12-strong GB and NI team.
Charlotte Morgan, Georgia Tindley and Jasmin Paris are all part of the women’s team for the event in in Mirandha do Corvo on Junr 8.
Carnethy HR runner Paris recently hit the headlines after outright winning the Spine Race covering a 268-mile distance from the Peak District to the South Scottish Borders. Her finishing time in that race beat the outright course record by over 12 hours and brought worldwide acclaim. She will earn her first British vest at these championships.
Morgan of course is the World Long Distance Mountain Running champion while Hunters Bog Trotters athlete Tindley also has previous experience with GB.
Team Leader Adrian Stott said: ‘The strength in depth of mountain and trail running in the UK just now is apparent in the strong men’s and women’s teams selected. The British team has traditionally competed well and come home with team medals from these championships.
‘We are sure our team will again be a match to challenge the leading nations like Spain, Italy France and the USA. The fact it is a relatively short, but technical 45km course for this year’s ultra-trail championship, has been reflected in the selection.’
Shettleston Harriers athlete Teddy Techoudja is celebrating a new Scottish U17 Record in the shot put, subject to the usual ratification procedures.
Teddy threw 14.05m at the Scottish Indoor League at the Emirates Arena on Sunday to confirm her recent superb form.
In fact, the previous day, the young thrower had won the FPSG U17s gold with 13.56m in the shot.
Many congratulations to Teddy, her family, coach John Scott and those at Shettleston helping in her development.
