Good luck to Jo Muir who is competing at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, representing Great Britain in the Modern Pentathlon. You can see how she gets on on Friday, 6th August with events starting at 6.30am GMT.
Jo is a former member of Stewartry Athletics Club, first competing in an 800m race in 2006 as an Under 13 Athlete.
The Modern Pentathlon requires Athletes to swim, fence and ride a horse to end up with a points score which gives them a time handicap for a final event where they must run a cross-country course while occasionally shooting at targets.
On Tuesday night we will be hosting our 4J Virtual District Competition, all member Athletes are welcome to take part.
All Athletes MUST declare at the cabin by 6.30pm so please make sure you arrive early and report to the declaration desk.
The first event will be 1500m and is due to start at 6.45pm, followed immediately by the 100m. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to warm up properly.
This event is part of a National Competition and Athletes can have their times/distances entered onto the National leaderboard, however they must have an active Scottish Athletics Membership to allows this to happen. Those Athletes who have let their membership lapse, or have not joined Scottish Athletics will receive a text message from the club. This must be acted upon before Tuesday night.
