Teenage runner Maria Lyle,from Dunbar, has been selected to attend three Talent Development Camps run by British Athletics in Loughborough.

The sessions are in December, February and March and are for athletes ranked in the top 12 in the world with a realistic potential to move onto the World Class Performance Programme within two years.

Maria will attend the camps along with her personal coach Henry Gray from Eyemouth.

It is hoped that these camps will prove to be a useful tool and the next stepping stone before future selection to the GB & NI Para Athletics Team.
