Kelso swimmer Ryan Brown received one of the top awards in his sport last weekend.

The 18-year-old City of Glasgow and Kelso ASC swimmer was awarded the WG Todd Trophy for Top Scottish Junior Male Performer of the Year at the Scottish Swimming Awards in the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh.

He earned the accolade as a result of his qualification and subsequent performances at the European Junior Championships in Hungary in July where he finished 12th in the semi-finals and also swam the butterfly leg of the medley relay.

Ryan later went on to win the Boys 17-18yrs 200 metres butterfly at the British Summer Nationals in Sheffield, confirming his position as Britain’s number one in the event for swimmers aged 18 and under.

Support from Clubsport Roxburgh, Borders Athlete Support Programme, Qube GB and Rugbystore allows Ryan to compete at these major competitions.

He is back in hard training after a well-earned summer break, aiming to continue to improve and looking to perform well at the Commonwealth Trials next year.
