Additional information

RIO SELECTION
He and fellow hammer throwers Chris BENNETT (SCO) and Mark DRY (SCO) were among last names added to British athletics squad for Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Asked by UK Athletics to achieve hammer qualification standard of 77m, or finish inside the world's top 16, all three fell marginally short. They lobbied UK Athletics, arguing that they deserved a place. Their plea worked, with UK Athletics performance director Neil BLACK suggesting it may have been "unrealistic" to expect them to achieve qualification. (heraldscotland.com, 16 Jul 2016)
