Lasswade Athletics Club athletes enjoyed more success last weekend as Guy Learmonth and Rachel Robertson added a gold and bronze medal to this season’s impressive tally for the club’s athletes.

Guy was competing in the 800m in the Flanders Cup meeting in Leuven, Belgium last Saturday night and against strong opposition ran a time of 1:48.34 to claim the gold medal.

Over the same weekend, Under 17 athlete Rachel Robertson was mixing with the best young athletes in the UK at the English Athletics Championships at Bedford.

Rachel collected the bronze medal in the long jump on Saturday with a jump of 5.31m, and finished in sixth place in the triple jump on Sunday, registering a new PB of 11.16m.

Rachel competes at this weekend’s Scottish National Age Group Championships at Grangemouth Stadium.
