Scottish Disability Sport Junior Track & Field Athletics

Wednesday 3rd June - Grangemouth Athletics Stadium

Lothian were able to enter a strong team of 21 athletes from across the region at the annual SDS junior track and field athletics at Grangemouth.  Many athletes from Woodlands (Edinburgh), Cedarbank (West Lothian), Saltersgate (Midlothian) and Kaimes (Edinburgh) were looking to better performances from previous years while newcomers to the event were experiencing the competition for the first time.  The selection team were able to enter a healthy number to the National competition due to the impressive turnout at the Regional event three weeks earlier which is very encouraging for the area.

Aaron and Corey McDowell (East Calder PS, West Lothian) are experiencing athletics for the first time after attending the Regional event and securing a place at the National event, going on to win medals in the 60m and Standing Long Jump.  Kate Snodgrass (Cuiken PS, Midlothian) also bettered her performance at the Regional event, shaving an impressive 8 seconds of her 800m time from the Regional event and claiming medals in the 100m and 800m.  There was also notable performances from Amy MacBeath (Lasswade PS, Midlothian) as she recorded PB's in the 60m and 100m and Matthew Power (Woodlands) who claimed medals in the 100m and 1500m.  Jonathan Watson and Chloe Wilson (both Saltersgate) showed the way in the Shot Putt, both throwing imposing distances to win themselves a medal.

Well done to all athletes who competed and represented Lothian superbly throughout a long day of sport.  Thank you is extended to all support staff and parents who supported the event and ensured that all athletes were given the opportunity to participate.
