North Eastern Counties Under 17 Men’s Champion Ruaridh Lang of Morpeth Harriers,
was certainly in fine form on Saturday 4th June 2016, when he finished a close second to City of Glasgow’s Andrew Peck, in the Discus, at the Scottish Athletics Throws Grand Prix,
held in Livingston, Scotland.
Lang produced a new lifetime best of 44.21m, which agonisingly was still a mere 23cm short of toppling the Scottish West District Champion,
however this latest effort ranks him currently as eighth in the National rankings.
Ruaridh also competed in the Shot Putt at Livingston, where he again finished second to Peck,
with a best on the day effort of 11.97m,
which is around 43cm adrift of his personal best.
