Making waves on the sprint circuit

Working offshore on a five-week-on, five-week-off basis may cause problems for some athletes, but not City of Edinburgh sprint victor Graeme Scott.

Working with his dad and coach Bruce Scott, the marine geophysicist takes an unorthodox approach to his training.

Bruce explained: “We have to train Graeme quite different from the normal modular system as he gets very limited exposure to the running track.”

While on the boat Graeme has access to a gym and, providing the boat is steady enough, he gets a few short running drills in up on deck.
