Senior Mens’ Heptathlon

Kilbarchan’s Andrew Murphy recorded 3 personal bests in the 7 events, plus a huge overall points PB which was a Scottish Native Record and of course a club record, along with his 8.40s in the 60m Hurdles. Andrew finished second in a very strong field containing many English athletes and four high quality Icelanders. Andrew lies 7th in the UK rankings and 1st in Scotland. And remember the 3 events missing that make up the outdoor decathlon contain two Andrew’s favourite events, pole vault and discus!

Let’s hope Andrew’s tremendous progress across the board can get him into the Scottish squad for the next Commonwealth Games!
