Amy Clark was given a hero’s welcome when she returned home to Eaglesham from the Special Olympics on friday.

The 15-year-old rhythmic gymnast brought a gold medal, plus two silver and a bronze home from the Special Olympics in Los Angeles.

Family and friends gathered at her home in Eaglesham for a surprise party where there were many messages of congratulations in the gold post box in her back garden. It was similar to that in Dunblane of her sporting hero Andy Murray.

Clark, who trains with Glasgow club and the Scotland West team is also the Junior Rhythmic Champion from last year’s National Downs Syndrome Gymnastics competition.

She also won ribbons for fourth and sixth place..
