Rio 2016 schedule for #SALfab15

Wednesday 17th August 2016

Good luck to our Men in Rio

Good luck to our Women in Rio

The countdown is very much on to the start of the athletics in Rio . . .

And what a special few days loom for 15 Scots selected to represent Team GB and NI in Brazil, the largest representation at the Olympics since 1908.

Hopes are high among our contingent but all will be aware the depth of competition via the scale of the event. Reaching finals will be the primary goal over the first few days as our track and field athletes take centre-stage. The Men’s marathon, featuring Callum Hawkins, Tsegai Tewelde and Derek Hawkins, takes place on Sunday 21 August.

With excitement growing and tremendous support for #SALfab15 across the scottishathletics social media channels, we’ve pulled together a schedule for the Scots in Brazil. Please note these times are for the start of the relevant athletics session – individual event times may be later so please check the exact scheduling.
