World Triathlon Champion Beth Potter has been nominated for two Scottish Sports Awards following a magnificent season for the Leeds-based star.

Potter, who hails from Glasgow, has been nominated for both the Female Athlete of the Year and Moment of the Year awards, after she clinched the 2023 World Championship in terrific style last month in Pontevedra.

The Rio Olympian, who represented Great Britain on the track in 2016, met the qualifying criteria for Paris 2024 next year with brilliant wins at the Test Event and then at the WTCS Finals, with her selection to the team imminent.

Icing on the cake for fantastic Potter

Going up against cyclist Katie Archibald and shooter Seonaid McIntosh for the Female Athlete of the Year, Potter will contest for the overall title of Scotland’s Sportsperson of the Year alongside the Male, Para-Athlete, Team and Young Athlete winners if successful.

For the Moment of the Year, Potter’s win at the WTCS Finals has been nominated as one of 10 standout performances, with the public voting to decide on the winner. Voting for this category will open at 9am on Wednesday, October 25 and remain open until 5pm on Wednesday, November 1.

Winners of the awards last year included World 1500m Champion Jake Wightman, multiple global medalist Laura Muir and Commonwealth Games 10,000m champion Eilish McColgan. The awards will be hosted in Glasgow on Thursday, December 7.
