S3 pupil Alison Horne (4T2) has been selected to throw shot putt for the Scottish Schools’ Athletic Association. This competition will see Scottish schools competing against schools from England, Ireland, and Wales. The event takes place at Santry Stadium in Dublin on 20 July.
Alison was selected to represent Scotland on the back of her performance at the Scottish Schools Athletics Championships were she won a Silver medal in the U-17 girls Shot Putt. Alison is eligible for this age group again next year.
Alison threw 9.76m and the winner threw 9.82m. Alison is pictured with her medal and also her badge standard. Competitors only receive these if they reach a required standard in their event. This is normally set very high and not many competitors receive these. Best wishes to Alison for success in Dublin.
