FEM financial controller Mark Gallacher has won two recent national seniors athletics titles in the last couple of months.

Foodservice Equipment Marketing’s (FEM) financial controller Mark Gallacher is proving to be a whizz on the seniors athletics circuit in Scotland.

On 22 August he competed in the British Masters Championships’ 3,000m M50 (over 50s) steeplechase in Derby, taking home a gold medal.

This win followed another victory in the Scottish Masters 3,000m steeplechase in July, winning in a personal best time and setting a new Scottish M50 record.

Gallacher commented: “It means everything to me to win these two titles.

“I now finish the season as Scottish and British champion, as well as the Scottish record holder, and I also represented Scotland last month for the first time since 1989 [a gap of 32 years between call ups].

“I am very grateful for the support Harry and Mark Hogan have given me.”

The former Motherwell Athletics Club runner is now an avid member of the Cambuslang Harriers.
