I took part in the Scottish Athletic Championships at Grangemouth today (Sunday 16-Aug-2009). I added to the Bronze Medal that I won in the Pentathlon by winning the Silver Medal in the 400 metres.
On Webnesday Evening (29-Jul-2009) 9 athletes from Perth Starthtay Harriers took to the roads and travelled through to Linwood to compete in the open graded and Grand Prix events.
Some video was taken, and you can view the Harriers-Linwood-2009-07-29 video on the Video Gallery page of the main website.
My events were the 800m and the 200m. Bruce did the 100m and 200m. Craig Ritchie and Cara did both the 800m and 200m. Emily, Susan, Patrick and Michael did the 800m. Aoifa did the 200m.
I only started going to the Strathtay Harriers in Perth in September 2008, so this is my first season. On Sunday 19th July, I was entered in the Scottish Age Group Combined Events for the Boys Under 15 Pentathlon at Pitreavie. This was my first pentathlon event.
The pentathlon consists of five events: Shot Putt, 80m Hurdles, High Jump, Long Jump and 800m. I had a pretty good day beating my personal best in each event and coming third overall which gained me a bronze medal.
My results were as follows: 9.52m in the shot putt; 13.92 in the Hurdles; 1.51 in the High Jump; 5.34 in the Long Jump; and 2:16.48 in the 800m (which I won).
As of 21-Jul-2009 my current record for all events in Scotland is as follows:
The table above shows where I am ranked in Scotland for Under 15 Boys and where I have room for improvement.
