ATHLETES at Dunfermline Field and Track Club ended the outdoor season after bagging a number of achievements.

There were a total of 24 medallists in the National Championships which built on the 15 earned during the indoor season last winter.

There were four gold-medallists for the club at the national competition which included Sophie Thomas who, in the under-15s 100 metres, broke the Scottish age group record for the event, which had lasted since 1975, with a time of 12.1 seconds.

Other gold-medallists were Mathew Tait in the under-17 high jump, Shayna Asamoah in the under-17 200m and Darcie Black in the under-17 long jump. In among these medals were a number of club records and personal bests.

In the East District Championships, the club amassed 19 medals, including eight gold. The successful gold athletes were Sophie Thomas in the under-15 girls' 100m and 200m, and Amy Jenkinson and Darcie Black in their hurdles events in the under-15 and under-17 competitions respectively.

Callum Newton added a gold in the under-17 group to complete the hat-trick. The field gold medals were in the high jump for under-13 Caitlin Chalmers and under-17 Matthew Tait, while there was also a long jump gold for Darcie Black in the under-17 girls' competition.

The National Relay Championships saw the club on the podium again with a silver medal and new club record for the under-17 girls' quartet of Darcie Black, Shayna Asamoah, Ellie Candlish and Kirstin Penman.

A spokesperson for the club said it was an "excellent outdoor season" with many expectations surpassed.

"A very well done to all our athletes for all their efforts," they said. "The hard work and competition over the winter should prepare our athletes well for another assault on the outdoor season next year."

The season also saw a number of athletes progress from the run, jump and throw classes into the senior club.
