Finally at the weekend on Sunday Josh Abbott travelled up to Markinch to compete at his first Highland Games.  He competed in the 800m, 200m and 400m.  He was the back marker for the 800m on a mark of 120m and was some 130m behind the front marker but cut through the field to take the win.  He then went on to the 200m, comfortably qualified for the final, but 200m was not enough to catch the young runners at the front he ended up placing 5th.  with the 400m being a longer distance he weaved in and out of all the young front markers to take the win giving him a great double win, well done Josh.  There will be more Chaser action coming up next weekend with the Scottish School Championships and Selkirk Games on the cards so good luck to everyone who is competing.
