Scottish Disability National Sportshall Athletics Festival

For the 9th year running Scottish Disability Sport in partnership with Scottish Athletics, Sports Development and Active Schools hosted the National Sportshall Athletics Competition at Grangemouth Community Centre on the 4March.  The competition welcomes young people from both primary and secondary schools with a physical/learning disability or sensory impairment.  A total number of 90 pupils (10 teams) took part in a range of scoring indoor athletics events such as the javelin throw, standing long jump, speed bounce, target throw, chest push and high stepper.

A selected team of 10 young people was given the opportunity to represent Lothian against their peers from across Scotland.  The team was selected from the Regional Sportshall festival hosted by West Lothian College on the 5 February 2015 which saw over 140 young people from across five local authorities register to participate.  The teams that took part were Aberbrook Fife “A” & “B”, Forth Valley, Highland Lothian, Perth, Annan, Greenburn and North Lanarkshire. 

Representing the Lothian team from West Lothian was:

Charlie Redmond (Windyknowe PS)

Michael Strachan (Windyknowe PS)

Aaron McDowell (East Calder PS)

Lee Rintoul (Livi Village PS)

Jack Wither (Cedarbank)

Nicole James (Cedarbank)

Lothian team did very well coming third in the competition with Fife A coming second and Abercorn & Holbrook coming first.

Kelly Keogh (Active Schools Coordinator) said “It was great to see Jo Butterfield (world record holder in discus and club throw and European Champion) supporting the competition and being an inspirational role model to the participants”.

A number of West Lothian College students, local coaches and volunteers were also there helping out and most importantly making sure the pupils had fun.
