Commonwealth Games discus finalist Kirsty Law is heading for California for three high profile competitions which she hopes to use to kick start her revived competitive career.

The 32-year-old multiple Scottish champion announced her retirement last summer but, soon after her wedding in November, had a change of heart which she is in no way regretting.

"I'm enjoying training so much more now than I've done for years," she said.

"And the great thing about it is that I feel that I'm doing it because I want to be there rather than because I have to be there. These competitions will make such a difference to the early part of my 2019 season."

The Inverness Harriers legend spent part of 2016 training in the United States, mainly in Arizona, but her competitions there also included spring events in neighbouring California. She is now looking forward to returning, again in the spring, in the hope that the Californian weather will enable her to make an early impression on the UK rankings.
