2013 Glasgow Sportsperson of the Year Awards

Friday 1st February saw the return of the Glasgow Sportsperson of the Year Awards, where Glasgow’s finest athletes, coaches and volunteers are recognised for their outstanding successes and contributions in the past 12 months. Given the success of many at all levels, including medalists at the 2012 Olympic Games, this year’s winners were particularly deserving of their awards.
Sir Chris Hoy was awarded Sportsperson of the Year at the spectacular ceremony at the Glasgow City Chambers. He said: “It is a massive honour to be awarded the Glasgow Sportsperson of the Year Award. It is a very exciting time for sport in Glasgow, particularly with the Commonwealth Games coming up. I hope everybody will get behind it and we will make it the best Games ever”. Aileen McGlynn, six times Paralympics medalist won the Disabled Athlete of the Year. Sixteen year old rising star, Andrew Mullen, won Young Sportsperson of the Year for his successes at his first Paralympics in London where he reached all three event finals he entered. Olympic gold medalist and University of Glasgow alumnus, Katherine Grainger, won the Leader’s Special Award whilst Olympic silver medalist and Glasgow School of Sport graduate, Michael Jamieson, won the Lord Provost’s Award. Other notable award winners included University of Strathclyde student, Robbie Renwick, picking up Glasgow Student Athlete of the Year and Ray Cavanagh winning Coach of the Year.
