All-time lists will change following a weekend of impressive performances on either side of the Atlantic with those on form included Josh Kerr, Allan Hamilton and Chris O’Hare

At the Bryan Clay Invitational event there was a  long jump PB for Allan Hamilton.

The Edinburgh AC athlete is at university in New Mexico and in his first competition off a full approach he reached 7.88 to move to second place on the Scottish all-time list behind record holder Darren Ritchie.

Josh Kerr is another operating in the same environment and the 2015 European Champion at U20 for 1500m made another step forward at the start of the outdoor season.

Josh clocked a superb 3.42.09 for a PB for 1500m and that will lift him to third place on the Scottish U20 all-time list – as he won the race in Azusa, California. That time was inside the World Juniors qualifying standard of 3.43 required for GB selection for Poland this summer.

In Boston, Chris O’Hare came home at the head of the elite field to win the One Mile race through the streets of the American city which is now home to the Edinburgh AC exile. Unofficially, Chris was timed at 4.09.
