Glasgow 2014: Hayley Haining earns Scotland marathon call

Hayley Haining will run for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games

Scotland have added three marathon runners to the athletics team for the Commonwealth Games.

Hayley Haining, 42, a veteran of the 2006 Melbourne Games, joins Freya Ross, who ran in the 5,000m and 10,000m in 2010, and Ross Houston as late picks.

Susan Partridge and Derek Hawkins had their places confirmed in September.

Gregor Maclean, 21, also merits an additional place in the Scotland team, joining Jax Thoirs in the men's pole vault.

"In terms of the three marathon runners, Freya, Hayley and Ross have competed regularly over a number of years on the domestic club scene in Scotland," said Nigel Holl, chief executive of scottishathletics.

"Now they are at the level where they have earned elite level representation for Scotland."
