Motion text

That this House congratulates para-swimmer Scott Quin on his bronze medal after a brilliant race in the SB14 100m breaststroke at the Tokyo Paralympics; notes the result was all the more remarkable given Scott had just returned to the pool shortly before the final following a period of covid-19 related self-isolation; recognises that Scott was diagnosed with Crouzon syndrome at birth with a three per cent chance of survival and has gone on to become an elite para-sport swimmer winning medals at Paralympic, World and European level; congratulates Scott's coaches and support team, Scottish Swimming and everyone in the ParalympicsGB team for their hard work and dedication which inspires a new generation to pursue their dreams; and wishes Scott continued success in his sporting career.
