Clegg claims title

NEWCASTLETON’s Libby Clegg capped a fine year by being named Scottish Para athlete of 2012.

The 22-year-old visually-impaired sprinter, who won silver at the Paralympics in September, was presented with her title at the scottishathletics awards by British wheelchair athlete David Weir, who won four golds at London.

Clegg said: “I have the World Championships in mind for next summer, but Glasgow 2014 is a really big part of my plans at the moment too.”
