The Scottish Athletics Archive is a major work in progress by SATS documenting all athletes who have appeared in the Scottish senior rankings since the first Scottish Athletics annual was published in 1960. The first part of this work covered the years 1959 to 1985 and this has now been extended to bring it up to the end of 2016.
The core part of the work is the athletes' records. These records (where complete) include each athlete's name, date of birth, clubs, year by year ranking records, and championship record. It is supported by further information with the top 10 rankings by event for each year, the record of Scottish champions in the period, and further information on district champions, age-group champions and schools champions.
There is a comprehensive guide to the information included in the athletes' records but there is still much information to be added, from missing forenames, dates of birth, family relationships, and the identification of athletes who may be from other countries.
Championship 1-2-3 dating back to the first championships in 1883 now added, and progressive best performance lists showing the best Scottish performances from 1883 to the present time.
If anyone can provide corrections and/or additional information, no matter how minor, and photographs for inclusion, all such items will be gratefully received. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The archive has been updated to include the athletes' performances for 2016. Thereafter the intention is to research information going back to 1946 while maintaining and updating the information on a regular basis.
