Paralympic gold medallist Owen Miller brought along a special medal to training the other night – his MBE.
The Fife AC athlete won gold in Tokyo and now landed recognition via the Queen’s Honours List.
On his Paralympic debut, the popular Scot blew away the field in the T20 1500m final with a stunning performance which captured the imagination and admiration of the athletics public in Scotland.
Owen was at Holyrood earlier this week to receive the MBE from Princess Anne and later that day brought the cherished medal along to training at Pitreavie to show coach Steve Doig and the rest of the group.
Congratulations again, Owen!
A very special day for Owen today as he received his MBE from Princess Anne at Holyrood Palace. Here he is showing it to his training partners this evening at Pitreavie.
