SIAB – Grangemouth – 18 July 2015

The schools international took place this weekend at Grangemouth with two Lasswade AC athletes selected for Scotland. The conditions were not ideal for fast times with a strong cool wind, welcome to summer in Scotland!

Cameron Steven finished 3rd in a slow tactical 800m race with very exciting and fast last 200m.  Lauren took part in the 1500m race, this was also a very slow race over the first few laps with the race only really starting over the last 600m. Lauren finished in 8th place.

The photo’s below show Cammy and Lauren looking very smart in their Scotland kit and Cammy receiving his medal.

Well done to both athletes!
