"Lord, I don't ask that I should win, but please, please don't let me finish behind Akabusi."

Innocent Egbunike's prayer at the 1988 Olympics

Glasgow Indoor Athletics

The British Indoor Athletics season got underway with the Sainsburys International meeting at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow. A Commonwealth Select team beat GB, USA and Scotland in a close encounter in front of a noisy sell-out crowd.

To mark Burns’ night, the athletes were lead into the press conference by a piper with Scottish captain, Eilidh Child, carrying a haggis.This was followed by the recitation of a Burns poem - see above.

Stuart was there in his usual media capacity, interviewing athletes and supporting others. The following pictures give a flavour of the event:
