Local MP Congratulates European Medal Wins for Stirling Athletes


Categories: Constituency, Events and Sport, University of Stirling

University of Stirling Swimmers Include Duncan Scott and Kathleen Dawson

Alyn Smith MP has congratulated local swimmers for yet another medal haul, as the University of Stirling’s reputation for sporting excellence continues for yet another year.

Taking part in the European Short Course championships in Bucharest, Romania, Team GB were placed highest due to their medal wins.

From a team of 35, 8 swimmers were from Scotland – with 7 from the University of Stirling itself.

All Scots came home with medals other than Evan Jones, who sadly became ill whilst in Otopeni. The University of Stirling swimmers were: Keanna MacInnes, Evan Jones, Lucy Hope, Katie Shanahan, Duncan Scott, Kathleen Dawson and Jack McMillan.

Coach Steven Tiggs said:
‘This is another impressive haul from a seasoned team of athletes, who give better and better every year. Stirling specifically has helped put Scotland on the map, contributing immensely to the overall success of TeamGB. My thanks go out to the athletes, their families and supporters, the University of Stirling and the countless others who have helped cultivate the fantastic run we’ve seen recently for Scottish swimming.’

Local Stirling MP Alyn Smith said:
‘Stirling is a hotbed of sporting success, and nowhere is this more prevalent than in our swimming champions. Bringing home medals is a tremendous achievement, but to win, big and consistently, stands testament to the focus and determination of these fantastic athletes and the organisations helping to channel their raw talents, skill and drive. A huge congratulations to Steven Tiggs, each of the athletes and institutions like the University of Stirling who come together to push Scottish swimming excellence to new heights.’
