Students from Heriot-Watt University took part in the recent Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India.
It was great to be involved in a multi-sport event as big as the Commonwealth Games and representing Scotland
Lee Jones represented Scotland in the rugby 7s and Kathryn Johnstone flew the flag for Scotland in swimming.
Lee, 22, is a fourth year Mechanical Engineering student and sports scholar from Selkirk. He helped the Scottish team finish sixth overall despite being seeded eighth. He says the experience of competing in the Games was second to none.
"It was great to be involved in a multi-sport event as big as the Commonwealth Games and representing Scotland. Delhi was a fantastic experience with top class facilities, accommodation and a great culture.
"My highlights would be competing for Scotland in the rugby 7s tournament, day to day life in the village amongst 7,000 other athletes and the whole Team Scotland ethos with all athletes supporting each other throughout the different sports."
The experience was excellent. I achieved more than I thought I would at my first international event
Kathryn Johnstone, 20, is a first year Sport & Exercise Science undergraduate and sports scholar from Cowdenbeath. She competed in the 50m and 100m breaststroke, and in the 4x100 medley relay in which Scotland finished fifth.
Kathryn said: "The experience was excellent. I achieved more than I thought I would at my first international event and therefore was extremely please with my performance. Making a final was the highlight of the event for me and gave me the confidence to perform even better for the remainder of the meet."
