Sammi Kinghorn named Scottish Sports Personality of the Year

Wheelchair racer and Honorary Rotarian Sammi Kinghorn believes being the first para athlete to be crowned Scottish Sports Personality of the Year will change attitudes for ever.

The award tops a great year for Sammi in which she won two golds and broke a world record at the world championships.

Sammi, from Melrose and an Honorary Member of the Eclub of Southern Scotland, has switched to marathon racing so she can represent Scotland in the Commonwealth Games in Australia in 2018.

She said: “My 100m and 200m sprint events aren’t included in the Commonwealth Games so I’ve decided to switch to the marathon. I’m determined to do my country proud.”

She is certainly doing Scotland and Rotary proud.

Champions of Peace at United Nations

District 1020 Peace Officer Jean Best was one of only six Rotarians and Rotary Peace Fellows around the world to be honoured at this year's Rotary Day at the United Nations in Geneva.

Not only that, but one of the two Peace Fellows honoured, Kiran Sirah, was a member of our GSE team which went to Colombia in 2009. Subsequently he was suggested as a Peace Scholar and sponsored by the Rotary Club of Tranent.

For one District to be associated with two Champions of Peace in a single year is probably unique and our congratulations go to Jean and Kiran on this well-deserved recognition.

You can see both of them at the opening session on UN Web TV below (from 51 minutes), introduced by John Hewko, RI General Secretary.
