U20 Men’s 4x100m Record broken (twice) in Germany – after 31 years

Sunday 25th June 2023

Women set new Senior 4x100m mark in Geneva

Scottish sprinting is in a good place at the moment – and Mannheim is the latest ‘good place’.

A team of young athletes supported by our scottishathletics Relay Project headed to Germany over the weekend to compete at the well-known U20 meet.

And our quartet broke the existing Scottish Men’s U20 National Record for 4x100m with an excellent performance of 40.73 on Sunday. That followed on from 40.89 performance on Saturday.

The previous Record, at 41.14, had stood for 31 years since 1992 – before then being broke twice in 24 hours in Mannheim.

Congratulations to Rory Voss (Pitreavie AAC), Dean Patterson (Glasgow School of Sport), Euan Cunningham (Falkirk Victoria Harriers) and James McMillan (Airdrie Harriers) and their coaches on this achievement.

The lads had broken the Record first on Saturday with 40.89 but slicker changeovers on Sunday saw them improve that time still further!

cottishathletics Relay lead Allan Scott was delighted with the four athletes, who also competed in individual 100m races, landing PBs and SBs.

Only a couple of weeks ago a Scottish Senior Women’s 4x100m team took down the existing Record in that event, too, on a trip to Geneva in Switzerland.
