Twenty athletes headed south to Gateshead on Sunday for our annual ‘international’ outing to the Tartan Games. 51 events were entered. The conditions were perfect – medals were won and personal best’s improved on.
Congratulations to all the medal winners: Alastair (1st in High Jump); Cameron (1st in 400mH); Callum (3rd in 100m); Adam (1st in 80mH, 1st in 100m, 2nd in High Jump); Elana (3rd in Hammer); Paul (3rd in Shot, 3rd in High Jump); Rebecca G (1st in Long Jump, 1st in 200m, 2nd in 100m); Olivia (2nd in 600m).
A huge well done to others who made it through to the finals: Joanne (100m); Grace (200m, 75mh); Lucy (200m).
Also, great to see so many achieving a pb: Fraser (200m, Shot); Morven (Shot); Laura (Long Jump); Lucy (Long Jump); Rebecca K (Long Jump, Shot); Olivia (60m, Standing Long Jump).
The commentator was certainly familiar with Team East Lothian by the end of the day!
ps. we understand that the Tartan Games name relates to the brand of running surface that was installed at Gateshead in the first year of the competition rather than any particular Scottish link.
