UK Schools Championship Success For Local Athlete

21 July, 2022 | Sport

GLENPARK Harrier Harris Morrison gave a lifetime best performance while representing Scottish schools in the Schools International in Belfast.

The 16-year-old Clydeview Academy pupil was competing in the individual 400-metre race.

As the gun set off the UK’s top schoolboys, Harris, occupying one of the outside lanes, was quickly into top gear, powering down the back straight.

Harris was in contention for the top places going through the halfway mark.

On the home straight all athletes were evenly spread across the track and only the photo finish could differentiate the placings.

Harris was awarded fifth place and achieved a fabulous lifetime best of 50 seconds ensuring he remains one of the fastest schoolboys in the country.
