Club athletes Ellen Kristoffersen, Rachel Robertson, and match official Dave Finlayson, returned home yesterday from their time at the UK School Games at The Olympic Stadium, London.
Rachel and Ellen travelled down with the Scotland team on Sunday, and enjoyed a terrific few days at the Excel Centre, where they were based along with the teams from the other home nations. There they attended presentations, met celebrities, and supported their Scotland team mates in the other sports involved in the games.
On the big day, after a 5am rise for an early breakfast, they travelled to the stadium for the match. The stadium was impressive, but the weather could have been better. However, both athletes went on to deliver good performances against strong opposition as Ellen finished 3rd in the High Jump (1.63m), and Rachel 4th in the Long Jump (5.52m).
Well done to both athletes.
The travelling LAC supporters had a great time as well!
