Another absolutely superb performance from Erin to take both the Under 17 Scottish title and the Scottish Indoor 3000 metre record ! A record which dates from 2005 ! Erin’s time at 9.36 .07 takes about 13 seconds off that record. [We realise that we are awaiting official ratification but hopefully there will be no problem with that]
Congratulations to Erin , her family , Dudley , her coach , his coaching team and her training squad too! She never faltered once as she maintained a solid pace over the 15 laps following the pacemaker for 13 laps and then bringing her fantastic effort to this conclusion ! Much appreciated congratulations were also sent to Erin from Siobhan Coleman the previous Record holder.
This feat took place today at the GAA/ BMC Miler Meet at the Emirates where a whole clutch of Giffnock athletes had a brief change from the mud to indoors to gain PBs at 3000m.
Some other great performances on show and the smile on Heather Barnes’ face probably says it all.
