Jonathan was joined by Commonwealth Games and Sport Minister Shona Robison, and Sir Craig Reedie of the International Olympic Committee in recognising the outstanding work by the 94 projects awarded 2012 Inspire Mark in Scotland.

The London 2012 Inspire programme recognises innovative and exceptional projects that are directly inspired by the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Jonathan Edwards said:

“With us now on the final stretch towards The Games, it is great to see the energy and enthusiasm amongst the people of Scotland, especially in projects like the Academy that have been awarded the Inspire mark. This will undoubtedly leave a strong foundation on which Glasgow 2014 can build and help leave a lasting legacy for Scotland.”

Ms Robison said:

“As well as delivering an outstanding Commonwealth Games in 2014 we as a government are determined to leave a lasting legacy from both the 2012 and 2014 Games. Programmes such as Inspire will do just this, ensuring everyone right across Scotland has the opportunity to be part of this exciting journey and I congratulate all of those who have been recognised with this award.”
