ATHLETICS: CHAMP SUSAN BURNS UP THE TRACK; SPORTSFILE.

THREE times Scottish champion Susan Burnside won the 100 metres at the British Grand Prix series final in Cwmbran yesterday in a dip for the line finish.

Running into a stiff head wind, the Edinburgh athlete clocked 11.93 seconds to beat Bolton 17- year-old Amy Spencer into second by 0.08 seconds.

Spencer, who holds the British junior record, took revenge over 200 metres winning in 23.65 seconds with Burnside second in 24.05 seconds.

Glasgow's Scottish champion Kirsty McGuire won the pole vault equalling her personal best with 3.90 metres.

Kilbarchan's former track and cross country champion, Bobby Quinn, staked his claim for a Scottish team place at the World Mountain Trophy Race in Alaska with victory in yesterday's Scottish team trial at Alva.

Running an 11.5km course in Ochil Hills Quinn won easily in 55 mins 20 seconds.

Carnethy's Tracey Brindley took the Women's 8.5km Trial almost 4 minutes clear of the field in 45 mins 27 seconds.

But the high temperatures affected the junior runners with three dropping out from heat exhaustion before the finish.

Sarah Blake (Hunters Bogtrotters) was a minute clear of the field when she collapsed with just 100m to go. She recovered later.

AMERICAN sprinters Maurice Greene and Tim Montgomery kept organisers guessing about their intentions at the Golden League Meet in Berlin yesterday.

Former world and Olympic champion Greene was in Germany but world kingpin Montgomery, who didn't even qualify for the 100m final at Crystal Palace last Friday, did not turn up.

Greene, who came third in his last two races in Europe, insisted he wanted to run a relay and not the individual sprint.

BRITAIN'S men added relay bronze to Scot Jamie Stevenson's sprint gold at the World Orienteering Championships in Switzerland yesterday.

The squad of Dan Marston (Edinburgh Interlopers) Jon Duncan (Grampian) and Stevenson (Edinburgh/ S Yorks) finished behind winners Sweden.
