THE BRAVEST AND THE BEST; Choose the Sports Stars and Unsung Heroes Who Have Made Scots Proud Sunday Mail SCOTTISHSPORTS Awards 07 in Partnership with Sportscotland


Byline: By EUAN McLEAN

SCOTTISH pride is steeped in our passion for sport and once again the country's biggest paper is honouring our national heroes.

The Sunday Mail Sports Awards, in partnership with sportscotland, are back and we want you to tell us the stars who have done most to make us proud.

World snooker champion John Higgins, US Indy Car sensation Dario Franchitti and tennis stars Andy and Jamie Murray have all performed at the very pinnacle of their sport this year.

But our awards do not only honour the big names - we also pay tribute to the unsung heroes, people whose commitment and achievement may not hit the headlines but secure their place as true champions.

The star names and unsung heroes will be hailed at the second Sunday Mail Sports Awards on Thursday, December 6.

And it's up to you, our readers, to tell us who you want to win. Categories include Sports Personality of the Year, Team of the Year and Inspirational Performance.

The winners will be presented with their awards on a night of glamour and drama at the Hilton Hotel, Glasgow. The ceremony takes place in partnership with event sponsors sportscotland.

The national sports agency are a driving force behind Glasgow's acclaimed bid for the 2014 Commonwealth Games with the winning city due to be announced in November.

Julia Bracewell, chair of sportscotland, said: "We recognise the important role sport plays in the lives ofmany Scots and are working hard to encourage everyone to enjoy the benefits sport can bring.

"We are delighted to be sponsoring this year's awards, highlighting the achievements of so many athletes, coaches and volunteers from elite level to grass roots."

Sunday Mail editor Allan Rennie said: "Sport is such an important part of the Scottish life. When our heroes do well, the whole country feels better. But success on the world stage is not the only feel-good factor - these awards are intended to reflect Scotland's love of sport at all levels.

"It's as much about the volunteer who's coached kids for 40 years as the superstars you see on TV." There are plenty of sensational and inspirational performances to choose from including:

Racing driver Dario's win at the Indianapolis 500, the first Scot to win the race since Jim Clark in 1965.

Boxer Alex Arthur's knockout performance to win the WBO super featherweight title.
