North Ayrshire's Jemma Rekkie won her first race of the year in France on Tuesday night.

The Beith athlete was competing in the 800m at the Athletic's World Indoor Tour in Lievin. 

Her race was first up on the track and she did not disappoint, continuing her top form from 2020 and 2019 - going close to sub two minutes for the distance. 

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald:

The 22-year-old finshed first in a time of 2:00.64 and she cheered on friend and training partner Laura Muir to a record time in the 1,500m later on in the evening with other British Olympic hopefuls in Elliot Giles and Holly Bradshaw also in action. 

Reekie has been touted as one of Britain's medal hopefuls for the Tokyo Olympics after setting a British record for an indoor 800m time last year.
