On the last Saturday in January the Sainsbury's Glasgow International Match went down to the wire, with Great Britain & Northern Ireland and the Commonwealth Select vying for victory with just a handful of events to go.
In the end though the Commonwealth Select did enough to hold on, taking victory by a mere 3 points from the GB & NI team, with the USA third and Scotland 4th. Wins for Kim Collins & Hellen Obiri helped secured victory for the Commonwealth team whilst their were emphatic wins for British athletes James Dasaolu in the 60m and Holly Bleasdale in the pole vault.
In front of a home crowd there were memorable victories for Scottish youngsters Laura Muir, Chris O'Hare and Guy Learmonth, which ensured the atmosphere inside the Emirates Arena won't be topped for a long time to come.
