Scotland will head for the traditional Loughborough International track and field fixture later this month.
And we are delighted to confirm selections in Men’s and Women’s teams for the event at the Paula Radcliffe Stadium on Sunday 19 May.
From Scottish Record holders in the field like Nick Percy to GB internationals in the women’s selection like Alisha Rees, Eloise Walker, Kirsty Law and Rachel Hunter, there are plenty of names to whet the appetite for what is always regarded as a key early-season fixture in the UK.
Six teams in all compete on the day and Scots can be selected for a number of them including the GB U20s and hosts Loughborough University.
The teams for this year are Scotland, England, Wales, GB and NI U20s, Loughborough University and British Unis and Colleges Select (BUCS).
It is an exciting moment for all athletes selected and scottishathletics would like to congratulate them and their families, coaches, training groups and clubs involved in their development.
Wearing the Scotland vest should remain a moment of achievement and pride and the reaction each year to the announcement of this team on our channels tells us that’s very much the case.
Look our for more coverage next week when we preview the event more fully . . .
