Hammer thrower Craig Mullins,16, from Peebles, won gold at the East District Under-17’s Hammer event at Pitreavie Athletics Track last Friday.

Craig recorded a distance of 51.80m with the 5kg hammer to win the event.

He now looks forward to the Scottish Schools hammer competition on June 6 at Hampden Stadium in Glasgow.

There is also the possibility of a Scotland call up for the Celtic Games in Dublin if he wins the Schools competition.

With the Scottish and English National championships also coming up, he has a busy schedule ahead.
