One of Scotland’s greatest ever runners is coming to Blantyre this week.
Yvonne Murray MBE will be dropping by the Livingstone Memorial Church on Glasgow Road this Wednesday 31st May at 7pm, as special guests of the fantastic ‘Sporting Memories Group’.
Yvonne is a Scottish former middle-distance and long-distance track and road-running athlete. She won a bronze medal in the 3000 metres at the 1988 Olympic Games, and gold medals at this distance at the 1987 European Indoor Championships, the 1993 World Indoor Championships and the 1990 European Championships.
Iain McMillan, co-organiser of the group told Blantyre Telegraph, “The event is open to anyone who wishes to come along please join us. Our group meets in Livingstone Memorial Church Hall every 2nd Wednesday. We’re part of the sporting memories network who support people with dementia.
