The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

Tom Mck­ean buried his ac­ci­dent­prone rep­u­ta­tion on the track to win the 800 me­tres crown at the world in­door cham­pi­onships in Toronto – but blun­dered by fail­ing to at­tend his medal cer­e­mony! The Glaswe­gian put the golden seal on a su­per week­end for Scots ath­let­ics fol­low­ing Yvonne Mur­ray’s 3,000 win and David Strang’s 1,500m sil­ver medal. Mck­ean, who has waited so long to win his world ti­tle, was phon­ing his dad Dougie back home and for­got the medal cer­e­mony was about to start.
