Law Athletics Club Sport Relief
LAW and District Athletics Club’s Julie Dobbin made it a hat-trick of national medal success in less than a month by claiming two golds at the Scottish Age-Group Athletics Championships at Scotstoun Stadium.
Her stunning efforts in the under-18 300m hurdles and the under-20 400m hurdles followed her National Senior Championships silver medal success last month.
A total of eight athletes from Law and District AAC were competing at the two-day event at Scotstoun
Dobbin ran a personal best time of 45.95 seconds in the under-18 300m hurdles final to win the gold medal, having earlier comfortably won her heat.
The 17-year-old added the under-20 400m hurdles title the following day in a time of 68.85 seconds. Currently the rising star sits at the top of the Scottish under-20 400m hurdles rankings.
Two of Law’s young male athletes both won bronze medals at the Age-Group Championships.
Lewis Nicholson earned his third place with a distance of 12.59 metres in the under-18 shot put, while Christopher Watson was third in the under-18 800m after a fine run of 1.58.89 minutes.
The athletes sit in 11th and 18th place, respectively, in the Power 10 Scottish rankings.
Alice McGrath found herself just outside the medals in fourth place, having run extremely well in the under-18 800m in a time of 2.23.72 minutes. She is currently sixth in the Scottish rankings.
Personal best performances were achieved by Kirstie McLeod in the under-20 discus, her gutsy final throw of 26.36 metres seeing her finishing fifth, and Christopher Boyle, who was fifth in heat two of the under-16 800m in 2.12.14 minutes.
Their efforts elevated Kirstie and Christopher to 11th and 15th places, respectively, in the Scottish rankings.
Elsewhere in the under-16 200m, Connor Thompson was third in heat two (27.56 seconds) and Stephen Murphy fifth in heat one (29.40 seconds).
Both earlier competed in the Long Jump.
