More track success for University sprinters

Sprinter Zoey Clark became Scottish Senior Indoor 60m Champion in what was an amazing weekend for University of Aberdeen’s student athletes.

As well as taking the title with a personal best time of 7.69 seconds, Zoey, a John Robertson sports scholar, also claimed bronze in the Scottish Seniors 200m behind Chloe Lambert and three-time Olympian Lee McConnell.

Alumni Future Fund sports bursar Stephen Dunlop finished with a brace of silver medals - in the men’s 60m and 200m, recording personal best times in both. First year student Tom Holligan finished just behind Stephen in the 60m to win bronze.

Of the six finalists in the Women’s 200m - four came from Aberdeen with Zoey Clark joined by Kathryn Christie (Aberdeen College), Alison Wylie (Aberdeen Sports Village member of staff) and Demi Ademuyewo (University of Aberdeen).

Donald Pirie, Head of Sport at the University of Aberdeen said:  “This was another fantastic showing by our athletes. It’s good for Aberdeen but at this level it’s also great for the sport in Scotland.

“I think it’s fair to say these performances are proof that the Aberdeen Sports Village is already starting to bear fruit for athletics."

The event was held at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow on Sunday February 18.
