Sports stars are an in­spi­ra­tion

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

It was in­ter­est­ing to read in last week’s Re­former of the lo­cal ath­letes go­ing to the Gold Coast for the Com­mon­wealth Games.

Hope­fully they will all do well out there, what­ever sport they are com­pet­ing in.

It is a pity that so many of these tal­ented young peo­ple will for­ever be over­shad­owed by those over­paid and pam­pered foot­ballers that dom­i­nate the sports pages and tele­vi­sion and ra­dio cov­er­age in Scot­land.

Scot­land as a na­tion would be in a health­ier place if it recog­nised that there is more to sport than just 22 men kick­ing a ball about. John Maxwell, Ruther­glen
