McNally selected for Great Britain squad
Alness athlete Abbie McNally has been called up to the Great Britain squad that will compete at the World Para Athletics Junior Championships.
The Inverness Harriers sprinter is one of 15 athletes who has been selected to the national squad that will compete in Switzerland in August.
McNally (18) who has cerebral palsy, will compete in the under-20 women’s section of the T37 100 metres and 200 metres at the world championships that takes place at Nottwill.
