Athletics is well-represented in a series of short-lists revealed by Scottish Women in Sport and their forthcoming awards.

Laura Muir leads the nominations and being named alongside two others for the UWS Sportswoman of the Year.

Scottish Women in Sport (SWiS) stage their annual dinner on Friday 8 November and winners will be announced then.

Leslie Roy, our President for eight years up to last month’s AGM, is nominated for the MG Alba Role Model of the Year award while jogscotland has been shortlisted for two awards.

jogscotland as a whole has been shortlisted for the Frame Innovation in Sport award, and our jogging group at Dundee International Women’s Centre is up for Kubenet Communities Club of the Year.

Among the achievements noted in the nomination for the Frame Innovation in Sport award was the work done by our Community Strides project, which has seen women from BME (black & minority ethnic) communities in Dundee and Edinburgh supported to become more active.
