With the Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards just two weeks away, Commonwealth Games Scotland, in partnership with the Aberdeen Standard Investments, is excited to announce the launch of the Sporting Moment of the Year 2018 public vote.
History makers, passion, emotion, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat – From Scotland’s historic victory over England in one-day international cricket, to Laura Muir storming away from the field to take European Championships gold, Scotland’s sporting stars have thrilled and inspired throughout the 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.
The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games provided a wealth of memories from beginning to end with triathlete Marc Austin set the tone with a magnificent performance to beat both Brownlee brothers and take Scotland’s first medal of the Games and on the final day our bowlers were dancing on the greens as the Men’s Fours struck gold in the most dramatic fashion.
Mark Stewart’s stunning Points Race win over five-time World Champion Cameron Meyer, Duncan Scott’s incredible finish to win 100m Freestyle gold and Grace Reid’s reaction to winning Scotland’s first ever women’s diving gold were also among the highlights.
Each of these moments has made Scotland proud, but which deserves to take the title of Sporting Moment of the Year 2018?
