Photographs: 90’s – Pt 1

Into the 1990’s and there were so many good runners in the squads – not all at the same time – but there were the 800/1500m men of the mid 90’s, the distance men of the mid and late 90’s, the excellent junior men all through the period, Scottish and British internationalists, Scottish and British champions as well as many very good club runners.   Let’s start with a group ..

As Staff Coach, I invited Steve Cram up to talk to some Under 20 athletes and their coaches.   Lots of easily identifiable faces in this one.
