Three Minute PB by Young Fife Wheelchair Athlete

Callum Sloan with coach Pamela Robson after the marathon

Competing in his third Virgin Money London Mini Marathon, Callum Sloan from Dunfermline recorded 00:21:25 in the under 14 boys wheelchair race. Coach Pamela Robson reckons this was a personal best time by over three minutes. Just reward for the many hours of training on the track and on the roads in the past year.

The young Queen Anne HS pupil trains at Pitreavie as part of the Disability Sport Fife weekly programme of run, push, jump and throws sessions, attended by athletes of all levels of ability with a disability. Distance training practice is held on the roads, parks and proms in Fife for the teenage T53 wheelchair athete.

Callum was in London with members of his family and coach Pamela. As well as being a personal best time this year, Callum recorded his highest age group finishing position of 5th. Another very special performance by a very talented Fife athlete. Well done Callum and congratulations.
