Andrew MacFarlane – Athletics success

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements, Personal

After Andrew’s silver medal  in the senior men’s pole vault at the emirates arena Glasgow  he followed this up a week later with another silver medal in the Scottish Athletcis U20 combined events championship. Over 2 days he completed 7 events and achieved person best performances in the 60m sprint, shot put, long jump and 60m hurdles. He jumped a season’s best – a championship best performance – in pole vault, 4.47m. His 1000m finale was very close to his personal best time. These results put him 12th on the  Scottish All Time List for indoor heptathlon. A few days later he won gold in the 60m hurdles at the Scottish Schools Athletics Indoor Championships – running his fastest time ever. His next competitions are the English  and Scottish U20 pole vault championships. He is grateful for the use of the warm school hall for some of his training.
