Shetland Students Impress In Glasgow

by Alastair Hamilton -

Two women from Shetland who are students at Glasgow have been making their marks in very different ways. Lynda Flaws, who is studying Sport Science, has won through to become Scottish under-21 women's table tennis champion. She's one of many young people who have benefitted from the exceptional standard of sports facilities and coaching in Shetland. Now, Lynda is hoping for a place in the Commonwealth Games, to be held this summer in Glasgow.

Meanwhile, Louise Polson, who is studying medicine in the city, has come up trumps in a photographic competition called Glaswow!. The competition was intended to highlight the best of the city and Louise chose to portray the Clyde Auditorium (usually labelled "the armadillo") and the recently-completed new venue known as the Hydro, which stand together on the city's waterfront. We send our congratulations to them both.
