Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has expressed his delight at the news that Kay Copland from Banff has won a gold medal in the 50m prone women’s rifle competition at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Pune, India.

44 athletes are flying the flag for Scotland at the Youth Games where, for the first time, all 71 Commonwealth countries will participate in the competition. It is hoped that many of the athletes who take part and win medals in Pune will go on to compete for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi 2010, London Olympics in 2012 and Glasgow in 2014.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I am delighted that Scotland’s first gold medal at this year’s Youth Commonwealth Games has been won by Kay. I know that her family, friends, and everybody in Banff & Buchan will be enormously proud of her success.

“With this medal under her belt, I am sure the future will hold many further successes for Kay in the years leading up to Glasgow 2014. Her victory will be a tremendous experience for her and I am sure that all of Banff & Buchan will be cheering her on to further victories in future competitions.”
