Angela Allen from Midlothian leads out athletes at Hampden Park

Midlothian’s Angela Allen showed some of the world’s best athletes the way at the Sainsbury’s Glasgow Grand Prix.

The 47-year-old, who is the store manager at the Livingston branch of Sainsbury’s, led out the men’s javelin throwers, including eventual champion Thomas Rohler, on to the Hampden Park track.

Angela said: “I’ve never done anything like this before. I’m a very proud Scot and it was very exciting to have a small part to play.

“I was just watching in case I fell. That was the biggest thing on my mind.”
