The Puma Group runner put in a superb run at the Portland Track Festival 2022 in Oregon over the weekend.

Her time of 15.05.21 puts her within World Championships standard timing, in an event where British women are looking very strong across the board this year.

The Lothian RC athlete has Commonwealth Games standards for Team Scotland in both the 5000m and 10,000m events.

Her time places her sixth on Scottish Athletics all-time list for that distance.

Last month, she came in fourth spot at The Night of the 10ks which took place in London, notching a personal best of 31:39.60 over 10,000m.

The runner is one of 40 endurance athletes across the UK receiving funding from London Marathon Events this year after missing out on British Athletics sponsorship.
