Tokyo 1500m silver medallist, Laura Muir was named Scottish Athlete of the Year for 2021 at the 4J Annual Awards that were held on Saturday (9) night in Glasgow.
“We’re more than two months on from Tokyo but it still feels very odd,” said Muir, whose coach Andy Young won Performance Coach of the Year. “When you work so hard for something for so long and then you finally achieve it there is a sense at times that it is not real. I look at the medal sometimes and it is very strange.
Muir was competing against the short-list of fellow Olympic medallist Josh Kerr as well as training partner Jemma Reekie and Eilish McColgan.
