Visiting Boxing Scotland
Brilliant morning with Boxing Scotland visiting their High Performance Centre and meeting East Ren local hero, Barrhead’s Commonwealth gold medal winner Sean Lazzerini.Glad to present him with a certificate of the Early Day Motion I laid down in Westminster to congratulate him. It really is wonderful to see this success after many years of hard work, and exciting to hear about future plans too.
Blown away to also meet Niamh Mitchell, who is Scotland’s first female gold medalist in a major international tournament. Great to hear of all the work being done to include more participation by women and girls in this growing sport.
The Boxing Scotland team should be very proud of their significant achievements with the medal tally at the Commonwealth Games demonstrating how far they’re punching above their weight (yes, I know…)
