Louise takes home two medals

ELLON young athlete Louise Milne (18) took home two bronze medals from the Scottish Nationals at Aberdeen Sport Village at the weekend.

Louise, who has been taking part in athletics since she was 10 years old, told the Herald and Times “I have mainly concentrated on throws especially shot putt and discus over the last few years. It was good to get back into competition as have been out of training most of the summer. I got two bronze medals, shot putt with a throw 8.31m and discus 22.41m, not the best results but I will keep progressing.

“Athletics is a great all round sport and I have completed an Assistant Coach course and I am now able to show the younger athletes how to do what I enjoy doing and pass on my skills and experience.”
