That this House congratulates 21-year old Danielle Joyce from Stevenston on her outstanding achievements at the 2017 Samsun Deaflympics where the University of Stirling student won gold medals in both the 50 metre freestyle and 100 metre freestyle events, a bronze medal in the 50 metre backstroke and a bronze medal as part of the record-breaking mixed 4 x 100 freestyle relay team; acknowledges the immense dedication of the former Auchenharvie Academy Head Girl to her sport and her tireless focus on training, which has led her to break deaf world records 28 times in the last three years and to be chosen as the first Scotland Ambassador of the National Deaf Children's Society, in which capacity she supported an initiative providing coaches with the training required to get more deaf young Scots into swimming; notes that Danielle was also named Scottish Sportswoman of the Year 2015, acknowledging what an excellent role model she is; and wishes her every continued success in her sporting career.
