SCOTTISH MASTERS ATHLETICS

22/07/2016

On Sunday 17th July, Jim Buchanan represented Scotland at masters track & field athletics, this was his second Scotland vest to add to his cross country international run last Autumn in Dublin.

A small team of nine Scots competed at the England Athletics Masters Inter-Area Track & Field Challenge, competing against the six English regions and the Welsh track & field team.  The Masters age categories for this event are 35 to 49 years of age, 50 to 60, and then over 70.

Held at the Tudor Grange sports centre in Solihull, a full athletics programme is run across one day with only the steeplechase being omitted. With a team of only nine, the emphasis was selecting a few events, maybe trying new ones, or challenging for a PB against competitors of national and international standard.

Realising it was thirty-three years since his last athletics meet, Jim decided to keep himself occupied across the whole day (and timetable allowing) competing in the long jump, 400m, triple jump, 800m, hammer and rounded the day off with a 3000m. Having undertaken the most events of any team member, Jim cheered on the Scottish relay team from the comfort of the outdoor masseur’s table!
