One hard-working, southside girl has found herself selected to represent her country at the upcoming Commonwealth Games.
Amy Regan (19), from Giffnock, has been chosen from the City of Glasgow Gymnastic Club to compete in the city-staged event.
Amy said: “Securing my place on Team Scotland and knowing I will be representing my country in the Commonwealth Games is an absolute dream come true.
“I’ve been involved with gymnastics from the age of five and training intensely for the Games for the past two years.
“There has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears: however, to be recognised for all my hard work makes it all worthwhile.”
Amy was determined to be fit for the Games after sustaining an injury earlier in the year.
The athlete continued: “I had an injury in February and really thought it was game over; but with the support of my coach — and of course my mum — I recovered and quickly got back on track.
“I’m really proud of my achievements and can’t wait for the Games to begin so I can do well for my mum and my country.”
In something of a coup, half of the 10 gymnasts for Team Scotland have been selected from the City of Glasgow Gymnastic Club.
Head coach Rod Smith said he was “absolutely delighted”.
