LEVEN athletes from the Robert Gough Centre scored impressively in the 36th Disability Sport Fife (DSF) Track and Field Championships, held at Pitreavie.

Schools, centres and clubs throughout took part and an added highlight of the championships was the number of junior athletes with additional support needs who participated from schools all over Fife.

Wayne Moreland from the Robert Gough Centre (pictured right) was awarded the Ian Watson Memorial Trophy for his performances across his three events and relays.

The Inter Centre trophy is always keenly contested and favourites this year were the Robert Gough Centre, challenging for an eighth win in succession.

However, the Aithernie Road squad lost out on this occasion to the West Fife Community Support Services, whose members won the team title for the first time since 1991.

Athletes from both teams were equal on points in field events but, in track, the West Fife athletes scored 53 points to Robert Gough’s 35, taking the title overall by 75 points to 57.

Participants who won three titles included the Robert Gough Centre’s Andrea Spry, in 400m walk, 60m and softball, while the Leven team also won the Inter Centre women’s 4x100m relay.

Disability Sport Fife president Richard Brickley said there was little doubt that the success of the DSF Vortex athletics sessions in different areas of Fife had resulted in better-prepared Fife athletes.

Christine Grist of the Rotary Club of Glenrothes, financial supporters of the championships, presented medals to successful participants.
