Many congratulations from all at scottishathletics to recipients in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list from our sport.
There are few things we like better than seeing volunteers rewarded for their timeless dedication and commitment to athletics in Scotland on a week by week basis.
And that is absolutely the case once again this for those who have received richly-merited accolades on the latest Honours list.
Arnold Black receives the MBE for voluntary services to athletics – Arnold will be known to one and all as the doyen of statisticians for our sport and he also has a role as our official historian.
Dave Campbell receives the OBE for voluntary services to athletics – Dave is a hugely respected figure in the coaching family and played a huge role in the lives of countless athletes, including Chris O’Hare and Josh Kerr, to name but two.
And Richard Brickley receives the OBE for services to disability sport (with athletics in Fife very much part of that).
*Former athlete Susan McDonald receives the BEM for her contribution to community sport, health and well-being in Renfrewshire. As a Kilbarchan AAC athlete Susan (then Crawford) was a Scotland international athlete in middle and long distance.
Great to see these contributions being recognised!
Proud and honoured to be awarded the MBE for doing something I love. Thank you to everyone for all the kind comments and good wishes.
