An athlete from Carnoustie has started collecting medals at a young age.

Megan Gowans is just 10 years old but recently won three medals and a trophy as top girl of the series for under-11 girls in the north east cross-country competitions run by Scottish Athletics.

Of the three cross-country courses run in December, January and February, Megan came first in two of the days.

This is only her second year in athletics and she runs for Arbroath and District Athletics Club. Megan has already collected 11 awards.

She is the only daughter of very proud parents Paul Macgenis and Caroline Gowans.
