Over the last few weeks has saw plenty of action indoors at the Emirates Arena.

Last weekend saw the Scottish Athletics Multi Events Championships and the heats of the Scottish Relays Championships .

In the Under 13 Boys Pentathlon saw two Shettleston’s athletes competing. Abraham Lanahan and Murray Graham saw them both some great performances with a number of PB’s. Murray (60mH 12.36i, LJ 4.02i, SP 5.11i, HJ 1.22m, 800m 3.09.73i ) put together a great series to finish 5th overall. Abraham (60mH 11.04i, LJ 4.10i, SP 7.29i, HJ 1.46i, 800m 2.42.17i) broke the club record for the Pentathlon to win the gold with 1460 points. Also his high jump of 1.46m added 4 cm to the club record as well. Well done to both the boys. Thank you to Bobby Gavin for the photo
