Veterans Home International 2012
The Scottish team for the 2012 VHI traveled to Northern Ireland, to take part in the VHI races on 16th and 17th June at Tollymore, near Newcastle.
The points for the VHI have been provisionally calculated and show that Scotland came second in both the Individual and Relay events.
Provisional points scores (based on published provisional results) are:
Individual (Men + Women = Total)
1. England 71 + 69 =140
2. Scotland 62 + 58 = 120
3. Wales 38 + 51 = 89
4. Ireland 39 + 34 = 73
Relays (Class MWM + Class WMW = Total)
1. England 56 + 62 = 118
2. Scotland 56 + 44 = 100
3. Wales 22 + 34 = 56
4. Ireland 22 + 16 = 38
1. England 258
2. Scotland 220
3. Wales 145
4. Ireland 111
So Scotland wll have to wait for next year's VHI (to be held in England) to see if they can bring back a VHI Trophy.
