Law retains Loughborough discus title
Inverness Harrier life member Kirsty Law successfully retained her Loughborough International discus title, winning the event for Scotland with a throw of 55.72m.
A tight and tense competition saw the first three throwers all breach the 54 metre mark and Law, who currently tops the British rankings, won by 52cm from England’s Phoebe Dowson.
This was the Munlochy athlete’s record 12th appearance for Scotland and it came just 24 hours after a second place in Amsterdam on Saturday with 55.07m.
“I’m pleased to get the victory and take the points for Scotland but just a little frustrated with the distance, although the lack of wind maybe didn’t help,” Law said.
“I know there is a bigger throw in there and it is just a matter of when. I didn’t ‘feel’ that one today but last year the ones I didn’t ‘feel’ were at 51m and 52m.
“I can definitely see the progress I’ve made."
