Maria Lyle
Athletics, T35 100m

Already a multiple World, European and Paralympic medallist, though still a teenager, Maria added Commonwealth Games silver to her impressive resume at Gold Coast 2018. She flew down the track at the Carrara Stadium in the T35 100m, finishing well clear of all her rivals, bar world record holder and home favourite Isis Holt.

Her success came on the back of medals over both 100m and 200m at both the 2017 World Championships and 2016 Paralympic Games, two silver medals in her individual events and gold in the relay at the 2015 World Championships and a host of European titles.

Maria was named Young Sportsperson of the Year at the 2016 Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards, an accolade recognised with the award of the Sir Peter Heatly Trophy.
