Big Time Athletics Back In Scotland

Susan Scott running for GB at the Kelvin Hall

THE UKA 2010 indoor athletics season gets under way in Glasgow with the return of the Aviva International match on Saturday, January 30 at the city's Kelvin Hall. The traditional team versus team format will again provide plenty of excitement for competitors and spectators alike, as athletes from across the globe battle it out to score valuable points for their country.

With four different teams claiming victory over the last four years, it's sure to be a close match in 2010. And with the IAAF World Indoor Championships just weeks away, there will no doubt be plenty to cheer about on the track as many of the world's finest athletes look to get in form for the rest of the season.

Last year local girl Susan Scott looked in superb form as she won the women's 1500m, whilst there was a new British record for Mo Farah, who clocked 7:40.99 minutes in the 3,000m to break John Mayock's 7 year old record by a nail-biting 0.10 seconds.

With 2009's event a sell out success, don't miss the chance now to secure your place in the crowd for the curtain raiser to what will undoubtedly be an exciting year of track and field. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at www.uka.org.uk or by phone on 08000 55 60 56.
