Her gamble over competing at the Loughborough Winter Throws Open paid off last weekend as she will represent Great Britain in her 19th season as an international athlete.

Her season opener of 56.38 metres, has now gained the 34-year-old Inverness Harrier a place in the European Throws Cup in Leiria next weekend.

However, Law is already at the venue, having flown there yesterday since she was already entered for an open event which takes place there on Saturday.

With her selection confirmed, she will now stay on for another week.

Law has been a regular performer at international level since 2002.

As a pupil at Fortrose Academy, she won the British Schools Championship.

She was a Commonwealth Games finalist in 2014 and sits third in the Scottish all-time discus list with 57.79m.

A figure which could well be improved this season which she has said – not for the first time and possibly not for the last either – will be her final one.
