Scottish Athletes representing GB at Euromeeting
7 Scottish athletes make up part of the 22 strong GB team competing in Euromeeting next week. Read on to find out who to look out for, when and where.
Euromeeting is part of the Scottish 6 Day this year. Seven Scottish athletes will be racing: Hollie Orr, Jo Shepherd, Mark Nixon, Douglas Tullie, Alasdair McLeod, Hector Haines and Jamie Stevenson. There are 3 races, first up is the sprint on the 6 day rest day. You can follow the action live in Lossiemouth from 13.25 until 15.00. The middle race will take place on day 4 at Loch of Boath and the long distance race on day 6 at Coulmony and Belivat. The team would love your support, so get practising for WOC2015 and bring your GB flags!!
You may wonder where our sprint stars, Scott Fraser (SILVER medal, World Championships 2013) and Murray Strain (9th, World Championships 2013), are. Unfortunately you won't be seeing them in action at Euromeeting, but this is because they are off to the World Games in Columbia.
