2021 is shaping up to be a hectic year for athletes with rescheduled competitions set to be plugged into the calendar.
Clark, 25, a 4x400m silver medallist at world level, has previously told the Evening Express she aims to keep training over the summer, with her solo running sessions now taking place at the University of Aberdeen’s King’s College playing fields among other locations.
She said: “I don’t want this year to be a complete write-off, so I’ll keep going, although it’s impossible to know how the season might unfold.
Although it’s frustrating not being able to train on a track right now I’m actually getting a lot of enjoyment training at the outdoor spaces near my house. I never fully appreciated how many wonderful spots there are on my doorstep. pic.twitter.com/j7qYud3LDO

“There might be some competitions later on, or nothing might happen at all – we’ll just have to see what happens.”
