Girvan athlete Kerry-Liam Wilson was at the Scottish Athletics Awards Ceremony as a nominee for Masters Athlete of the Year for the third time - and this time came away with the award.

This year being Olympic year, the company was very esteemed indeed with guest speaker Derek Redmond himself an Olympian. This year Kerry-Liam has won a European silver half marathon Masters medal and a “first time ever” quadruple of British and Scottish 5,000m track and road titles. An amazing feat especially with it being the 46 year-old’s first season on the track.

Two age group records were smashed, one that has stood since 1995, in an amazing year for the Girvan based international runner. Kerry-Liam started in 2002 under the careful eye of Nat Taylor and Jack Maxwell and says he is forever in debt to them. “Maybe one day I can return the favour and help nurture another multi-title winning runner just like Nat and Jack did”, added Kerry-Liam.
