As part of Team Scotland’s recently launched themed year ‘Celebrating Our Past, Building Our Future’, the Team Scotland Scottish Sport Awards 2019 will celebrate some of the greatest moments in Scottish sporting history, while looking to those young athletes who will continue to put Scotland on the sporting map for years to come.
A huge celebration covering recent and past achievements across all 25 sports in which Scotland has competed at a Commonwealth Games, the Awards will recognise Team Scotland stars past, present and future in an evening of inspiration and entertainment.
This year the Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards will help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Team Scotland Youth Trust and we are proud to be raising funds to support Scotland’s aspiring young athletes on their sporting journey.
CELEBRATING OUR PAST, BUILDING OUR FUTURE
The list of past Scottish Commonwealth Games champions reads like a ‘who’s who’ of Scotland’s sporting greats, including boxer Dick McTaggart, swimmer David Wilkie, sprinter Allan Wells, distance runner Liz McColgan, shooter Alister Allan and cyclist Chris Hoy.
At recent Games the baton has been taken up by stars like gymnast Dan Purvis, cyclists Katie Archibald and Neil Fachie, swimmer Duncan Scott and athlete Eilidh Doyle – all of whom have also won Olympic or Paralympic medals. Our success at the past two Commonwealth Youth Games also augers well for Scotland’s sporting future.
