Other sports

Reason: "I loved riding my mountain bike as a kid, but athletics was my original sport. After losing my funding from British Athletics, following the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008, I made it my mission to make it to London 2012 (Paralympics). Cycling was the first sport I tried." (veloveritas.co.uk, 14 Dec 2017)
Ambition: Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. "I would absolutely love to be able to defend my two titles for team Scotland." (veloveritas.co.uk, 14 Dec 2017)
Memorable: "Two highlights stand out. Wining the gold medal at the London Paralympics was incredible. And winning double gold in Glasgow in front of another home crowd." (veloveritas.co.uk, 14 Dec 2017)
Hero: "I was always inspired by Sir Chris HOY (Scottish cyclist) for sure, and I have learned a great deal from seeing him train. I also take a lot of inspiration from what my rivals have done." (veloveritas.co.uk, 14 Dec 2017)
