Following an appeal to the athletics community in Scotland, we’re delighted to confirm three new members have been co-opted onto our Records and Statistics group.
This gathering sits as a Sub-Committee of the Track and Field Commission and assesses performances in a historical context on a regular basis.
Three new members – Alison O’Rourke, Steve Nairne and Ron Todd – attended their first meeting at the Emirates Arena towards the end of May to look at some recent performances.
From now on, athletes who lands Scottish Records will receive a newly-created Scottish Record Certificate from scottishathletics to mark the achievement.
Recommendations from the Records and Statistics Sub-Committee have now been ratified by the scottishathletics Board at the June Board meeting.
