Duo among the nine Glasgow 2014 athletes so far named on Scotland’s team for Sainsbury’s International Match in January
A number of Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games athletes will form part of the Scotland team for the Sainsbury’s Glasgow International Match on January 24.
Guy Learmonth, who won the 600m at this event earlier this year and finished sixth in the Commonwealth 800m, and Jamie Bowie, who was third over 400m at the 2014 International Match, are among those who will take on athletes from Great Britain & Northern Ireland, Germany and France at the Emirates Arena next month.
Kirsten McAslan, Sarah Warnock, Ray Bobrownicki, Diane Ramsay, Greg Louden, Grant Plenderleith and Zoey Clark are the other Glasgow 2014 athletes named on the Scotland team so far.
“Firstly, let me congratulate all the athletes, and their families and coaches, on Scotland selection for the Sainsbury’s Glasgow International. It should always be an honour to wear the Scotland vest,” commented Rodger Harkins, director of coaching at Scottish Athletics.
“There are one or two who missed out on the Commonwealth Games who will see what it took last summer to qualify and will be starting to think about Gold Coast 2018.
“It is chance for them, and indeed all the athletes, to push themselves forward. I am hoping that we will see some good signs of individual development.”
