And with success lower down the age groups in the England Athletics Champs it was to prove another weekend which revealed further evidence of the strength of Scottish CE at the moment.

In terms of the Home Countries match itself, Holly McArthur took the win as she finished third overall (with two guest athletes) with a tally of 5485 points.

Holly’s former training partner, Emma Canning, was fourth in the match with a PB of 5061 points as she now pursues her CE in Paris.

Scott Connal put together a fine weekend and finished third overall and as first U20 athlete in the match. Cal McLennan was fourth.

So a small Scottish representation but a very solid collective performance – once again demonstrating the strength of our CE athletes at the moment.

Well done to athletes and coaches involved and thanks to Iain McEwan for leading the team on behalf of scottishathletics.
