Great meet, Ceres. It commemorates the Battle of Bannockburn on 24th June 1314 that was a decisive Scottish victory in the scottish war of independence.

The meet is over 690 years old.

My memory of running there in 1986 is vivid because it is the only meet I ever false started at, in the 12 years I competed. The starter told me something amusing and I was still thinking about it when I was on the blocks.

I had won a race the week before at West Lothian and the handicapper who happened to be the starter at Ceres, pulled me back about 1.5m. I suggested the penalty was a bit harsh for a 90m race.

He replied: "Paul, you won a race last week, have a look around, there's many here today who haven't won a race.....it's someone elses's turn, this week."

I laughed and thought that was a very good answer....and still thinking what a great comeback.........then I broke!

Thanks to JH for the results.

2014 will be the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn - should be some celebration.

POLISH POWER REIGNS AT CERES writes Shane Fenton

Despite a peppering of showers a good crowd encircled the Bow Butts for the annual Ceres Highland Games, and they witnessed a number of fine performances in the running, cycling and heavy events.None more so than from the trio of Polish strongmen in the throwing events.

Brothers Lukasz and Sebastien Wenta along with Dominic Zielinski have thrilled the crowds at all the Games they have attended this summer to date, breaking numerous ground records along the way.It would be no different at Ceres, Sebastien claimed wins in three of the disciplines, the 56lb Weight for Distance, Ceres Stane and the Sheaf Toss.

Lukasz and Dominic both threw the 56lb weight to a height of 17 feet to share the first prize in that event, Dominic also won the Caber [for distance] competion and shared the top spot in the Caber[traditional] with Bruce Robb from Oakley.

The overall champion on the day was Sebastien Wenta.

There were some exciting finishes in the athletic events, in the final of the 90 metres Handicap, Borderer Sean Grant from Innerleithen edged out Cameron Smith ,Tullibody and former New Year Sprint winner Craig Robertson, Gala in a time of 9.5 seconds.

There was a Pitreavie AC 1 - 2 in the 200 metres Handicap with backmarker Ewan Dyer powering though the field to pip his club mate David Agnew in 22.15 seconds, last years SHGA sprint league winner Lee Goodfellow, Earlston took third.

Dean Whiteford made his long trek up from Innerleithen a worthwhile one by racing to victory in the 800 metres Handicap, Whiteford crossed the line in 2 minutes 00.15 seconds ahead of Craig Robertson, Pitreavie AC and veteran Sam Bates, Tullibody.

The 1600 metres Handicap saw victory go to 16 year old Callum McGaw, who was winning his first race on the Games circuit, the Carnegie Harrier broke the tape in 4 minutes 34.66 seconds. Graeme Gibson, DWF and Craig Robertson filled the minor berts.

There is a saying horses for courses well that must surely apply to Coaltown of Balgonie veteran athlete John Thomson whose win in the 3000 metres was his 12th win on the tight 200 metres Bow Butts circuit, Thomson's winning time was 9 minutes 35 seconds, Gibson and Robertson were once again 2nd and 3rd.

In the Youth's running events there was a 90 metres, 200 metres double for Ryan Hooton from Cadrona, in both races Grant Goodfellow TLJT and Eve Huxley, Innerleithen finished 2nd and 3rd. The Youth's 800 metres was won by Connor Morris, Pitreavie AC in 2 minutes 11.66 seconds, Amy Armstrong,Edinburgh was runner-up with Dylan Thomson, Pitreavie AC in 3rd.

Conditions for the cycling events were extremely testing, Paul Gallacher, Kirkcaldy has made a great start to the season and that continued at Ceres where he won three races, the 800m, 1600m and 3000m Handicaps, on each occassion back marker Craig Hardie,Dalgety Bay was runner-up with James Melville, Dumbarton third.

Hardie eventually got his wheels over the line first in the final event of the day the Deil tak the Hindmost denying Gallacher, who was second a clean sweep.
