Olympic cheers at sports day

Ellon Academy’s sports day had an Olympic flavour to it on Tuesday.

One of the loudest cheers was for local Olympic torchbearer Blair McClymont who made a special appearance.

Blair, who is about to leave the school for university, received a warm welcome when he made an appearance during the sports.

He said: “It was great to be here and let people see the torch. Being a torch bearer was an amazing experience.”

Acting rector Glynis McClymont, Blair’s mother, said the day went well.

She added: “The PE department put on a slick porgramme. It stayed dry and everyone enjoyed themselves.”
