Second Silver for Meg

September 10, 2015

Meg Finnon finished her Samoa Youth Games experience with a fantastic swim in the 800m Freestyle for her second Silver medal of the Games.
The East Kilbride swimmer dug deep to touch second behind Australia’s Georgia Darwent and was delighted to double her medal tally on the final day of the aquatics events.
“I wasn’t expecting a medal in this event but I did know I was in with a chance if I really worked hard to the end. I wasn’t going in focusing on medals so that makes it even better to come away with two Silvers. It’s a really good way to end my experience in Samoa.
“I think this will give me a good head start for going into bigger senior competitions and gives me confidence to go in and start racing at that level. This has been a once in a lifetime experience that I’ll never forget, it’s just been absolutely amazing.”
There were excellent results from Youth Team Scotland’s swimmers on the closing night of competition with Tain Bruce, Kieran Preston and Craig McLean coming close to adding further medals, all finishing in 4th place.
Meg’s Silver was a fitting finale to a fantastic overall performance from Youth Team Scotland’s swimmers in Samoa with the medal tally from the pool standing at seven.
