Role models: Jemma and Josh are PB cover stars for new edition

Thursday 28th March 2024

Our new edition of PB magazine is going out to scottishathletics members over the next few days – in print and the digital version by email.

The first edition of 2024 is a special one as it marks the World Indoors in Glasgow – the first global track and field champs held in Scotland.

We have a 12-page special section devoted (mainly) to the Scots with the GB and NI team – Josh Kerr, Jemma Reekie and Laura Muir – plus our Scottish Officials on duty. Track legend Tom McKean also takes a run down Memory Lane.

The Lindsays National XC always commands attention and we’ve a three-page special covering all the excitement of that event.

In our Grassroots Athletics section, look out for some terrific, absorbing reads from writers Katy Barden and David McCarthy.

These include a look at the rise of Women’s Running in Scotland, Larkhall YMCA, Andrew McGill/Frank Clement and Steve Adam of Carnegie Harriers. We’ve a High Jump piece, too, with Matthew Tait and coach Allan Smith.

Finally, we’re 100 years on from a rather special moment at the Olympics so our scottishathletics Historian, Arnold Black, has edited a piece (by the late Colin Shields) all about Paris 1924 gold medallist Eric Liddell.
