You may remember that we have been rather excitingly sponsoring young Scottish athlete, Alastair Marshall, in his pursuit of representing Great Britain at the Euro U20 Champs in Estonia in July 2021.
We have some fabulous updates on Alastair’s progress. Not only did he run a ‘Personal Best’ in the 5000m, 3000m, Mile (4.07), and 1500m (3.50) he also met the qualifying times for both the 5000m and 3000m which are 14.16 and 8.16 respectively.
Sadly, just before his 5000m Trial on the 12th June, Alastair was unwell and was not fully recovered before running the race. It was an extremely hot evening in Watford (roughly 25 degrees) which didn’t help him as its weather he is not used to running in. He did however do enough in the race to come third and so now Alastair is in a good position for selection
Alastair is now back to training at full health and working hard to hopefully have a good result in Tallinn, provided he makes it!
We are keeping everything crossed for the 6th July, when the GB squad is selected.
Good luck Alastair!
