SCOTTISH ATHLETICS MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Grangemouth

Sunday 16 June, 2013

 

Home advantage clearly paid off for the Vic’s as Grangemouth Stadium played host to the Scottish Masters Championships on Sunday 16th June. Several Harriers athletes showed that they still had what it takes to win by claiming a number of medals.

Fiona Matheson once again demonstrated her dominance of long distance running as she won not just her own W50 age group but the actual overall race in both the womens’ 1500m and 3000m. Craig Johnston in the M45 category matched this tally of 2 golds and also took home an additional silver, while Barry Paterson struck gold in the M35 5000m. He was followed closely home by Brian Turner, who achieved silver in the same age group. Doubles were the order of the day for a number of Vic’s. M40 athlete Anthony Devlin did well, taking silver in the 800m and 1500m, events where Caroline Lawless was also successful winning silver and bronze, whilst Alex Bryce won two bronze medals in the 800m and 400m.

The medals continued to be won right up until the final events at almost 7pm. David Bunyan struck silver in the M60 400m, as did Beryl Junnier in the W50 3000m with Grant Matheson having the satisfaction of not only winning the Vics final medal of the day in the M50 5000m but setting a new 5km personal best in the process.
