Freya receives award from top Scottish athlete
Kilgraston pupil, Freya H, has been given the honour of becoming the Disability Sports Person of the Year at the Perth and Kinross 2018 Sports Awards.
Adding to the thrill of the night, Freya was awarded her prize by elite Scottish athlete, and local girl, Eilidh Doyle. Commenting on the experience, Freya said: “It was just brilliant to meet her.”
However, this was not the first time Freya had been in close proximity to the famous sprinter. Just the weekend before, she had been picked to represent her athletics club, Strathtay Harriers, as a ‘kit carrier’ at the prestigious European Indoor Athletics Championships in the Emirates Stadium in Glasgow. Here, Eilidh, along with another Perthshire girl, Laura Muir, were competing.
Freya is a multi-disciplined tack and field athlete and is currently ranked top of the table in the UK for the Senior Javelin F37 category.
Over 140 sports enthusiasts attended the P&K Awards, which were held at the Dewars Centre in Perth on 8 March 2019.Back to News
