scottishathletics are pleased to confirm a series of new Records set over recent months.

Our Records Committee, a team of volunteers led by Arnold Black and part of the Track and Field Commission, has studied the paperwork for these performances.

And now the June meeting of the scottishathletics Board has rubberstamped nine new marks set by Scottish athletes in different age-groups.

The Records Committee are satisfied that they meet the requirements for recognition as records and recommended them for ratification by the Board.
