And the venue for that event is now Grangemouth (following an issue at Livingston) and we’ve contacted all entrants with details (including how to claim a refund if required).

GB and Scotland international high jumper Allan Smith has announced his retirement from the sport.

Allan is a multiple Scottish medallist and won British championships and medals, too.

The Falkirk Victoria Harriers athlete committed more than 10 years to the sport and he had a PB of 2.29m indoors.

At the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast in 2018, he was desperately close to the medal after a fine series that saw him clear a best of 2.27m and finish fifth. The bronze and silver medals were at 2.30m.

Allan was coached by Bryan Roy at that time and it was a partnership which covered most of his career.

We offer warm thanks to Allan for a big contribution to high jump in Scotland over the past ten years or so and offer our very best wishes for the future.
