With the Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards just three weeks away, Commonwealth Games Scotland, in partnership with the European Championships, Glasgow 2018, is excited to announce the launch of the Sporting Moment of the Year 2017 public vote.
History makers, passion, emotion, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat – from Scotland’s stunning win over Ireland in the opening game of the Six Nations to Laura Muir smashing a 32 year old Championship record on route to European Indoor gold, Scotland’s sporting stars have thrilled and inspired throughout the last year in an impressive array of sports.
Seven top Scottish sporting moments have been shortlisted by our judges, with the winner to be determined by an online public vote. The award will go to the sporting performance over the last 12 months that has captured the hearts of the nation.
Sammi Kinghorn racing to a first ever global title in a new World Record, Leigh Griffiths scoring two free kicks in quick succession to take Scotland into a 2-1 lead over England in their World Cup qualifier and boxer Josh Taylor defeating Ohara Davies to retain his Commonwealth Title belt were standout moments. Also in the running are the new dawn for Scottish Netball as the Sirens made their Superleague debut in front of 5,000 supporters at Emirates Arena and Stephen Milne and Duncan Scott’s gold medal winning performance as part of the Men’s 4x200m Freestyle at the World Championships.
Each of these moments has made Scotland proud, but which deserves to take the title of Sporting Moment of the Year 2017?
