SUPERB 5TH AVENUE MILE DOUBLE IN NEW YORK

IT’s already been a hectic weekend across the Scottish Athletics community but what about this news from New York late this afternoon . . .
Jemma Reekie won the Women’s 5th Avenue Mile in 4:21.6 and Jake Wightman quickly followed that up as he claimed victory in the Men’s race in a fine 3:49.6.
The race is a highly prestigious one but the Scots topped the podium as our Olympians ended memorable seasons on a high a few weeks on from Tokyo.
Well done to Jemma and Jake and their coaches Andy Young and Geoff Wightman.
