Scottish Sports Awards – all the details 

scottishathletics have been short-listed for Scottish Sports Governing Body of the Year for 2023.

And our nominations is one of only a number right through the Scottish Sports Award as full recognition of an excellent past 12 months.

Athletes, coaches and volunteers will be celebrated at the Science Centre in Glasgow on Thursday 7 December.

And scottishathletics will be ‘pitching’ for the Governing Body title with our friends and rivals Scottish Cycling and Scottish Disability Sport.

There are short-list slots for athletics also via Josh Kerr, Samantha Kinghorn, Ben Sandilands, Steve Doig and Billy Roberton of Kilmarnock Harriers.

‘I am delighted for the sport that scottishathletics has made the shortlist for Scottish Governing Body of the Year,’ said Colin Hutchison, our chief executive.

‘Ultimately, this is recognition for not only the staff and their commitment, but for the collaboration between the governing body and the athletics community in Scotland.

‘Across the categories it is pleasing to see such strong recognition for athletes, coaches and volunteers which just highlights what a successful year it has been for athletics in Scotland.’

Held in a new format at the Glasgow Science Centre, guests will be treated to a night of celebration and a chance to revel in the stories and moments of the year on the biggest screen in Scotland, as well as rubbing shoulders with the great and the good of Scottish Sport.
