Inspired by leading Olympians to be best

A contingent of 12 students from Linlithgow Academy have been chosen to rub shoulders with Olympians, Commonwealth champs and Paralympians.

The ‘Be Your Personal Best’ event, organised by the charity Winning Scotland Foundation, takes place in Clydebank on Thursday, May 15.
