S5M-13570 Keith Brown: University of Stirling, 10 Years as Scotland’s University for
Sporting Excellence—That the Parliament notes that the University of Stirling is celebrating 10
years since its designation as Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence in 2008; recognises
the contribution that its students and alumni have made to Scotland’s sporting success locally,
nationally and internationally, including a tally of 11 medals at the Gold Coast Commonwealth
Games and three at the 2016 Olympics in Rio; considers that this excellence in performance,
participation, research and academia will be strengthened further by the establishment of
Scotland’s National Tennis Academy and a £20 million transformation of the university’s sports
facilities, and believes that a thriving sport and health culture is of benefit, not just to the university,
but to the community in Stirling and Clackmannanshire.
