Callum Donaldson from Woodmill HS was in outstanding form at the 2016 Disability Sport Fife (DSF) Track and Field Championships, excelling in the three individual events he contested. Callum was awarded the Gilbert Trophy, presented to DSF by Gil Cochrane, one of the many volunteer officials who support the event each year.
Callum recorded the fastest junior time of the day for 100 metres (13.5) and 800 metres (2:35.2) and threw the softball 36.60 metres to register the longest senior or junior throw of the Championships. Callum was presented with the Gilbert Trophy just before the end of the school term by his Principal teacher at Woodmill HS, Janice Graves.
Callum has a future in track and field and every effort is being made to encourage him to follow in the footsteps of Woodmill High School’s most famous athlete Owen Miller. Being involved in the Fife Track and Field Championships and the Scottish Disability Sport Cross Country Championships opened up so much for Owen and he has not looked back since. Perhaps in Callum Fife has another young athlete to follow in his footsteps.
