Anniversary Games, London.

Some great results from our athletes at the Anniversary Games, starting with Beth Dobbin 3rd in the 200m with a new National Record time of 22.50.

Jake Wightman came within touching distance of the 37-year-old Scottish mile record, claiming 3rd place, Jake produced a PB of 3:52.02 in the Emsley Carr Mile, making him second-fastest Scot on the all-time list over that distance, behind the long-standing record of 3:50.64, set by Graham Williamson in 1982 (Williamson also ran the 2nd and 3rd fastest Scottish miles, giving Jake now the claim to 4th fastest mile by a Scot overall).

Chris O’Hare took 7th place in 3:53.35, with Josh Kerr 8th in 3:53.88 .

Lynsey Sharp got the win and a season’s best in the 800m, crossing the line in 1:58.61, showing a steady progression after her 1:58.76 finish in Monaco earlier this month.
