SCOTTISH Athletics’ National Open took place on Saturday at the Kelvin Hall International Sports Arena, Glasgow. Competitors included the Scottish hurdler and Olympian Allan Scot, who clocked a 60m hurdle win with a time of 7.85s, and the UK U20 high jump champion Allan Smith, who won with a 2m 10cm clearance.
Thirteen-year-old Peter Skirrow competed for the first time in the new IAAF compatible age categories, in both the U16 60m hurdles and the U16 high jump.
A new personal best 60m hurdle time of 11.07s saw the young Alnwick Harrier finish a respectable third.
And another personal-best performance in a closely-matched high jump competition saw the youngster go one better to finish second.
