“It’s always one of my favourite competitions of the year and I’m very proud of that record,” said Law ,who started out at Inverness Harriers but is now based in England.

Men’s discus champion Nick Percy also looks a good bet to defend his title.

It is the 127th edition of the Scottish Championships but new ground will be broken as BBC Scotland will screen live coverage on its website tomorrow afternoon.
