This comes only a few weeks after he won a very well deserved M50 1500m silver medal at the Masters National Championships at Grangemouth on Saturday clocking a super quick 4:35.48, less than 3 seconds off the title. Scott led for most of the race before being out kicked on the final lap.
Although Scott’s run on Sunday was the fastest by a Scottish M50 over 5,000m in 2018 in windy and drizzling conditions he was denied the chance to defend the title he won last year as the Masters Championship race was combined with the very popular GAA milers meeting held on Friday night 27th July where entries filled up in day when Scott was away. Despite being defending champ no discretion was used by the organisers which seems counter productive and deserves to be criticised. Scott is able to claim moral victory however after his quicker run on Sunday.
