Two of Scotland’s World Champs athletes were in action over the weekend at high level meetings.
And there was a win for Laura Muir over 1500m in Padova in Italy and a third place for Eilidh Doyle in the 400m Hurdles at the Diamond League meeting in Rabat in Morocco.
Laura won her 1500m race in a time of 4.05.01 to get back on the winning trail after that second place at the Anniversary Games in London over the mile.
Eilidh took a third place finish with 54.92 and tweeted: ‘Happy with my performance and another third place in the Diamond League in Rabat.’
Scotland hill running teams were in action at the Snowdon International over the weekend.
And there were great performances by the Scotland women’s team to win the team race in fine style.
Louise Mercer took an individual second place and was followed home by Miranda Grant, who was sixth. The third counter was Jill Stephen in eighth to complete a superb team effort.
On the men’s side, James Espie was fifth, Robert Simpson 10th and Kyle Greig 14th.

London 2017-bound Zoey Clark competed for her English club Thames Valley Harriers in the British Women’s Premier League match at the weekend.
And the athlete who has been selected for the World Champs at 400m and for the 4 x 400m Relay came up with three top performances.
Zoey clocked 11.54 in her 100m to top the Scottish rankings for this year and go to fourth equal place on the all-time list.
In the 200m, she recorded a run of 23.36 for another PB which takes her into the top 10 on the all-time list. And in a 4 x 400m Relay, there was a split time given of 51.4 to complete a great day’s work.
It helped Thames Valley win the title as Edinburgh AC took third place overall after a fifth place in the weekend match (See EAC website report below).
