Andy Murray wins the Sportsperson of the Year Award at the Stirling Sports Awards
Scot Andy Murray added another feather in cap this year when he was named the Sportsperson of the Year at the 2012 Stirling Sports Awards.

Great Britain’s pride Andy Murray is probably the best player this nation has produced in quite some time. He was acknowledged as the Sportsperson of the Year at the 2012 Stirling Sports awards. The Scot has had a dream season, as he won the Gold Medal in the Men’s singles event and Silver Medal in the Mixed Doubles event at the London Olympics

He then went to lift his maiden Grand Slam title at the US Open. He was also the runners up at his home Grand Slam at Wimbledon this year. In doing this, Murray captured Great Britain’s first Gold Medal in tennis in the last hundred years. He was the first player from Great Britain to advance to the Wimbledon Final in the 74 years.

The World No.3 was not able to attend the award ceremony, but he sent a personal message, in which he said, “Hi everyone, I’m so sorry I can’t be with you tonight to collect my award, I’m about to embark on my training block in Miami, basically my pre-season ahead of the Australian Open and with Ivan at the helm, it won’t be pretty!”

He continued, “I always love coming home, Stirling is a place close to my heart, and an award like this means a great deal. I can still remember the homecoming to Dunblane after the US Open win, such an amazing atmosphere, something I’ll never forget. I’m proud to be part of the local community and it’s great that sport is celebrated in this way here in Stirling. I’ll be back up soon though I promise thanks again and here’s to 2013 and sport in Scotland.”
