    Scotland’s most medalled athlete, Lee McConnell, today announces her official retirement from athletics:

    “Over the past few months my life has changed in an amazing way, I am now a mum.  When I fell pregnant with Ethan I made the decision to continue with training through and post pregnancy and see where that took me. I have now reached the decision that my career as a professional athlete has come to an end. 

    I was always a working athlete and will continue as a working mum, focusing on the media and other work that has always sat as part of my double career track alongside athletics.

    Those supporting stars throughout my career know who they are and I look forward to personally thanking each and every one of you over the coming weeks.  For just now, please know that I appreciate you more than I can say.”

    Lee’s coach Rodger Harkins said:

    “The last 12 months working with Lee have been as rewarding as ever, her appetite to continue learning and developing right through to the end of her career has been infectious and myself and her physio have been inspired to stretch ourselves as well. Looking back, Lee’s career has been a long and hugely impressive one. She is Scotland’s most medalled athlete. She has competed not only for Scotland, but for Great Britain and Europe. She is a triple Olympian. She qualified for every major championships in the eleven years she competed and has Commonwealth, European and World medals to her name.  More than that she will be remembered for her attitude- she is a knowledgeable and intelligent person who has been an inspiration to young athletes, fans, peers, coaches, support staff and most of all, me!”

    On 2014 Lee said:

    “2014 is obviously a huge year for Scotland and this was not an easy decision to make as it means not competing in a home Commonwealth Games. Now is my time however.  I am excited for the new opportunities and challenges that retiring from athletics will bring me and look forward to getting involved with a home games – just not as a competing athlete!” 

    -End of Statement-

Athlete of the quarter


Whiteburn’s Athlete of the Quarter is Jonny Gray

Jonny Gray is a Scottish Rugby Elite Development player attached to Glasgow Warriors.

He joined Glasgow Warriors in the summer of 2012 on the back of stand-out performances for Hamilton and Scotland U20's. He started his first game for the national under-20 side - for whom he has been capped nine times - when he was just 17 and was selected as their Captain age 18 for the 2013 RBS 6 Nations.

November 2013 saw Jonny make his full international debut against South Africa ( replacing big brother Richie Gray) and in January 2014 he captained Scotland A's for the first time- leading his team to the win against England Saxons. All this and still only 19 - a worthy recipient of the AOTQ award!
