Performances will determine the composition of the Fife team for the Scottish Championships, organised by Scottish Disability Sport, to be held at Grangemouth Stadium in September.

The winner of the Ben Mills Trophy for the second year in succession, awarded to the outstanding male athlete of the championships, was Darryl Gibson, from Dunfermline Track and Field, with wins in the 400 metres, 200m and long jump.

Ten-year-old wheelchair athlete Callum Sloan from Dunfermline, whose racing wheelchair was generously donated by the student members of the University of St Andrews netball club, competed in his first Fife Championships and recorded personal bests for the 60 and 100 metres.

The athletes from the West Fife Community Support Services retained the Inter-Centre Team Cup and also won the men’s and women’s senior 4 x 60m shuttle relay plus the men’s inter-centre 4 x 100m relay. Woodmill High School athletes won the 4 x 100m junior relay.
