As Scottish Athletics reported “In Senior terms, David Smith and Heather Paton were probably the standout performers with the high jump champion clearing 2.21m to meet the Gold Coast qualification standard while the English-based hurdler raced to a Native Record with a PB of 8.37 for the Women’s 60M Hurdles.”

Adam Clayton tookthe Sprint double at Under 17  with a new Club record in his 60m at 7.10 and a Championship Best Performance of 22.45 in his 200m

Coach Garry Paterson reports that  –

Although this was a CBP  [ Championship Best Performance ] , it was not an all time record . Adam just missed out on the all time  200m record which has stood since 1996, 21.99 secs by Kris Stewart. The 60m record is 6.97 secs was set by Cameron Tindle in 2014.  This double  for Adam follows an Outdoor U17 200m Gold and Outdoor 100m Silver ( missing Gold by 0.04 secs ) in August this year.

Adam is looking to set qualifying standards for the  Commonwealth Youth Games in Bahamas this year. Standards are 10.90 for the 100m and 21.95 for the 200m

So watch this space as Adam continues to surprise us all, We wish him all the very best

Scottish Athletics reported:

“VP-Glasgow’s Jade Henry in the 60m hurdles and Adam Clayton of Giffnock North AAC in the 200m were the athletes to set new marks on the track for the Scottish U17 Championships with fine performances.  Clayton won the 60m in 7.10 but it was his 200m run at 22.45 which landed the best performance accolade.”
