Borders’ athletes could be in the mix when the first draft of the Scotland Commonwealth Games team is announced on September 16.

Guy Learmonth from Berwick and Chris O’Hare from West Linton are the two top middle distance athletes. Both have the qualifying times and are the top ranked runners in Scotland in the 800m and 1500m respectively.

Also in the running are Newcastleton’s Libby Clegg, one of the world’s top visually-impaired athletes, and Sam Kinghorn, from Gordon, a first-class Paralympian wheelchair racer.

And, there may be more that will come to the fore as the season goes on.
