Stroma Fraser is set to represent Scotland when she competes at the British schools indoor pentathlon match in Glasgow.
The Fortrose Academy pupil will pull on the international vest just three days after her 14th birthday to make her debut at under-16 level on Saturday.
Her selection follows winning silver medals in the Scottish schools under-14 and Scottish under-15 pentathlon championships this summer.
Her impressive performances in the sport came in the aftermath of a serious ankle break in a non-athletics accident shortly after she set the national under-13 pentathlon record of 2805 points in July 2018.
However her coach, Charles Bannerman, says that although unfortunate, it’s been possible to turn that injury to longer term advantage.
