Reekie becomes Senior 800m Champion

Jemma Reekie turned her attention to the shorter distance to race over 800m (only her second outdoor 800m this season) against some serious senior competition, including defending champion Mhairi Hendry(VP Glasgow).

Jemma drove off the final bend to pass Hendry in the home straight, running  2:08.39 in a gutsy run to take gold.
