Last Sunday keen Largiebeg sportsman Dougie Auld competed in the Scottish Masters Indoor Athletics Championships at the Emirates Stadium in Glasgow with mixed results.

He won the over 65 mens shot putt for the second consecutive year throwing 9.04m – two centimetres down on last year’s winning performance. However, in the 60 metre sprint he injured his hamstring halfway preventing him  finishing and from trying to regain the high jump title, which he previously won in the over 40s category.
