Lanark-born athletes go for glory

Golden ambition...medal target
Golden ambition...medal target

ALTHOUGH Forth boxer Scott Forrest is the only member of Scotland’s Commonwealth Games squad currently living in Clydesdale, there are two Lanark-born folk in our team for this summer’s extravaganza in Glasgow.

Forrest’s fellow fighter Charlie Flynn – who is now living in Motherwell – will be going for glory in the lightweight class. His first fight is today.

And distance runner Susan Partridge – now based in Sowerby Bridge – will contest the women’s marathon competition tomorrow.

Both Charlie and Susan will be raring to impress the home crowds, as the Scots try and win as many medals as possible.
