TEAM GOLDS FOR CAMERON BOYEK AND FOR STEPH TWELL:
Scotland's Cameron Boyek helped the GN and NI team to victory in the first ever Mixed Relay event at the Euro Cross.
Cameron was on the second leg and took the Brits into a lead that they held on the final two legs to see off the Czech Republic by one second.
Earlier, there was another top 10 place for Steph Twell in the Senior Women's race and yet another team gold medal for the Scot in that event.
Well done to Cameron and Steph in Samorin.
SUPERB EURO CROSS BRONZE FOR ANDY BUTCHART!
Terrific effort today in Slovakia by Andy Butchart to take a gutsy third place and bronze medal at the Euro Cross.
Andy, of course, was fourth last year and improved on that with a strong run after leading for sections of the race.
Many congratulations to Andy, his family and coach Terrence Mahon with the GB and NI squad taking team bronze medals, too.
So that's a second Scottish Senior Men's medal at the Euro Cross in successive years, following the third for Callum Hawkins in Chia last year.
