Inverclyde Athletic Club’s John Bell’s excellent start to the track season continued with

another bronze medal, this time at the Scottish 10,000m Championships at Crownpoint

with a 20-second personal best.

Four weeks after placing third at the Tom Scott 10 Mile Memorial Race, John was pushed

to his limit in his latest hunt for silverware, in a frontrunning group featuring Shettleston’s

Jamie Burns, Aberdeen’s Michael Ferguson and Cambuslang’s Ryan Thomson.

With Burns stretching away in the final lap to beat Ferguson, John was pushed hard to the

line by Thomson, running a 64-second last lap to take third place in a photo finish.

Both athletes recorded new personal bests, with John’s new mark standing at 30:02.27.

David Tamburini and Robert Paterson were silver medallists in the Vet 45 and Vet 50

categories too, finishing in respective times of 34:32.88 and 34:58.45.

In the same race, their teammates Jon Hammerman and Jason Kane recorded times of

34:47.88 and 35:42.14 too.
