We are delighted to report that almost one third of Scottish athletes participating in the Winter Olympics in South Korea are previous recipients of funding from The Robertson Trust.
As part of our Excellence Awards portfolio, we work in partnership with SportsAid Scotland to support a number of initiatives that aim to nurture and develop talented young Scots with the ability and potential to participate at the highest level of their chosen sport.
Through this programme, the following participants at this year's event were supported:
- Murray Buchan (Men's Halfpipe)
- Andrew Musgrave (Multiple Cross Country)
- Andrew Young (Multiple Cross Country)
- Calum Smith (Multiple Cross County)
- Charlie Guest (Women's Slalom)
- Alex Tilley (Women's Slalom)
Roddy Mackenzie, Chief Executive of SportsAid Scotland, stated: "It's fantastic to see so many of our alumni realising their potential and getting to an Olympic Games.
"We have watched their progress closely as they have developed into world-class athletes and we are grateful to The Robertson Trust for their support and for backing the dreams of so many young athletes across a lot of sports."
All at the Trust wish them well for the upcoming event!
