Trinbago Games schedule (all sports)

Eight young Scottish track and field athletes head for Trinidad and Tobago this week to compete for Team Scotland at the Commonwealth Youth Games

The concept of the Youth Games was created by Scotland in 2000 with the aim of developing young athletes and giving them an early experience of an international multi-sport environment.

The event, which this year takes place August 4-11, has a proven record of uncovering future champions at senior level, and a host of current stars have competed at past Youth Games, such as Lynsey Sharp, Eilish McColgan, Zoey Clark Nick Percy and Erin Wallace.

Alison Grey and Allan Hamilton will look after the athletes in Trinidad in team manager roles.

Team Scotland depart on Tuesday for a flight to London and then fly on to Tobago before a final ferry journey to Trinidad. The athletics action takes place in Trinidad.

We spoke to endurance duo Amy Teasdale of Kilbarchan AAC and Millie McClelland-Brooks of Inverclyde AC/Glasgow School of Sport prior to their departure with Team Scotland.
