2001 Edinburgh Games
August 25, 2001
While the USA Junior Tour will conclude for most of the U.S. athletes in England, several athletes will be extending their European stay. Nine male athletes from Team USA, and 10 female athletes will travel to Scotland to compete in the Edinburgh International Games, to be held on Saturday, August 25.
This meet will follow IAAF rules, and includes athletes from Scotland, Wales and Ireland. In addition, a number of Highland Games events have been inserted into the schedule of track events. These events do not form part of the team match.
During portions of the day's events on Saturday, U.S. athletes will get a chance to become familiar with the Scottish culture through pipe band displays, Highland dancing displays, and caber tosses.
