With The Scottish Sports Awards just over a month away, Team Scotland, in partnership with sportscotland, is excited to announce the launch of the Sporting Moment of the Year 2022 public vote.
From the standout moments of Team Scotland’s most successful Commonwealth Games outside Scotland at Birmingham 2022 to gold on the global stage, both winter and summer, Scotland’s sporting stars have thrilled and inspired throughout the year in an impressive array of sports.
Eight 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.
Louise Christie’s silver-medal winning ‘Braveheart’ performance stole the show in Birmingham, as did Tyler Jolly’s record 11-second knock-out on his way to the boxing podium. Eilish McColgan winning 10,000m gold will live long in the memories of those who saw it, with Team Muirhead’s gold medal performance at the Beijing Olympic Games and Jake Wightman’s stunning World 1500m gold equally memorable. Laura Muir made it three medals from three majors with European gold, while Ross Murdoch coming back from retirement to win a Commonwealth Games bronze medal and Micky Yule bringing his daughter onto the podium after winning Commonwealth bronze at his third try left barely a dry eye in the house.
Each of these moments has made Scotland proud, but which deserves to take the title of Sporting Moment of the Year 2022?
