Doug Gillon has been a fixture at just about everything that matters in world athletics and at just about every Scottish meeting he could get to: he’s been seen at East Kilbride in December sliding on icy pavements, in muck and glaur at Clydebank and Beith, as well as at track events.   Now, supposedly, retired he is the latest profile on site.   Get it here.

The photograph above is of one of the best coaches Scotland has ever had – Iain Robertson on the right at the back with a group of athletes including Lynne MacDougall and Angela Bridgeman.   You can read it  here .

There will be others dealing with various events and races as time passes – and this one will be added to

I was surprised a month or so ago with the number of views for the profile of Jimmy Duffy, the Scot who ran for Canada in the Olympics.   I now have a link, provided by Alex Wilson, of Jimmy running in the 1912 Olympic marathon.   It is at :

 .. for your information, Jimmy is the Canadian in the Tam O’Shanter!   If you haven’t looked at the profile yet. just click on his name.
