The UK School Games are coming up at the end of the month and Scotland will again be represented in athletics.
Loughborough University’s superb facilities are the venue this time with the multi-sport event staged from Thursday 30 August through to Sunday 2 September.
Scottish Schools have now named their team to head south and there’s a strong Para contingent, too, with ambulant and wheelchair events in the programme.
A number of athletes who impressed in the SIAB International, the Celtic Games and the Scottish U17 Champs are selected for the UK School Games.
Well done to all those selected to compete in Loughborough and, in this context, their schools, teachers and families (as well as of course their coaches and athletics clubs where so many of them are developed).
