ATHLETICS star Jack Lawrie has enjoyed more success on the track after shaving more time off his own national record.

The 27-year-old, originally from Cowdenbeath and retains connections to Pitreavie AAC, set a new Scottish 400 metre hurdles best whilst competing at the England Athletics Senior and Para Open Championships.

Lawrie, who in 2018 was named as Dunfermline and West Fife Sports Council's Sports Personality of the Year for the previous 12 months, ran for the other club to which he is affiliated, Woodford Green Athletic Club with Essex Ladies, who are based in east London.

After winning his heat at the event, which was held in Chelmsford, Lawrie ran a time of 50.04 seconds to finish second, just behind Jacob Paul (49.99, Windsor Slough Eton & Hounslow AC), and ahead of Maranga Mokaya (50.10, Oxford University AC), on the dip after all three cleared the final hurdle together.

Despite missing out on a gold medal, Lawrie's silver was achieved by shaving time off his own previous Scottish record in the 400m hurdles, which was 50.07, achieved at Austrian Open - World Athletics Continental Tour Bronze event last summer.

His latest success comes after a successful outdoor season so far, which has included running for Scotland and winning at the Loughborough International Meet, in May, and finishing fifth in the final of the UK Athletics Championships, in Manchester, earlier in July.
