For over 20 years Sandra has been the driving force behind Nairn Amateur Athletics Club, firstly as a coach and latterly as Chair-person of the club. She has always had a particular interest in youngsters and the development of their individual talents. For the last 10 years she has been Convenor of The Nairn Highland Games and she was instrumental in introducing the Junior Highland Games on the morning of the Games. Without Sandra's drive and enthusiasm neither the N.A.A.C. nor the Nairn Highland Games would have the effect on the local community that it undoubtedly has today. For 12 years Sandra was Chair-person of the Nairn Sports CounciI. I cannot think of anyone who has done more for athletics/sports in Nairn, who is more deserving of such an honour than Sandra Ross, to carry the 'Olympic Flame' in the North of Scotland.
