Scots on Team GB: Day 12

August 4, 2021

It was a relatively quiet day for our Scots in Team GB on Day 12, with progression on the athletics and cycling tracks. We spotlight the efforts of some of the athletes who may feature for Team Scotland at Birmingham 2022…


Laura Muir eased through her 1500m Semi-Final, finishing second with a time of 4:00.73. She’ll be racing for a medal in Friday’s final (13:50).

It will be the turn of the men in Thursday’s 1500m Semi-Final, with both Jake Wightman (12:00) and Josh Kerr in action (12:10).

Elsewhere the Women’s 4x400m Relay heats also take place on Thursday, with Team GB in heat two (11:37). Nicole Yeargin will be hoping to feature, with the first three in each heat and next two fastest across both heats qualifying for Saturday’s final.


Jack Carlin was in impressive form in the Men’s Sprint, finishing third fastest in the Qualifying Round before winning his last 32 head-to-head with Australian Nathan Hart. He’ll be back in action in the 1/8 Finals on Thursday morning (07:54), with the Quarter Final later that morning (from 08:45).


It was disappointment for Sarah Robertson and the Team GB Women’s Hockey team, who lost out 5-1 to Netherlands in the Semi-Final. They will be competing for a bronze medal on Friday (02:30).
