His time is also the fourth fastest by a Scot in 2013 behind US-based James McLachlan, Ryan Oswald (Pitreavie) and clubmate Allan Hamilton.

Another clubmate, Michael Olsen, took the under-16 60 metres in 7.34 secs while Ben Robbins (George Watson’s) won the over-16 400m in 49.68.

Robbins will also compete in the Scottish senior indoor championships at the Emirates a week on Sunday where his coach Dave Goodall is hoping he will go under 49 seconds.
