PEEBLESSHIRE will be well represented this weekend at the annual Celtic Games.

Not only are three of the region's leading young athletes pulling on Scotland vests to face Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, but coach Linda Nicholson has also been called up as the team's jumps coach.

Ellie O'Hara from Cardrona will compete in both the triple jump and long jump at Grangemouth for the Under 18s team on Saturday.

And the 15-year-old will be joined by 14-year-old training partner Imogen Lewis, who has been selected for the Scotland Futures team, in the triple jump.

Linda told us: "This is the third time Ellie has competed for Scotland in the triple jump but her first at long jump.

"It is an honour for all of us to be selected."

Peebles athlete Charlotte Clare has also been called up to compete for the Under 18s team in the 4x400 metres relay.

And she will also take to the track for the Futures Team in the 800 metres.
