Hugh heading to Paralympics

A CURLER from the region has been selected for Team GB for the forthcoming Winter Paralympics.

Hugh Nibloe, from Stranraer, will be part of the five-strong Team GB to compete in the wheelchair curling event in China,

And he has been congratulated by Galloway and West Dumfries MSP Finlay Carson, who has lodged a congratulatory motion at the Scottish Parliament.

Mr Carson praised Hugh’s remarkable journey in being chosen again to represent the UK and said: “I am absolutely thrilled that Hugh will be competing again at the Paralympics, having previously taken part in 2018.

“He has displayed enormous dedication and commitment, not least travelling to Stirling to take part in training in preparation for the actual competition itself being staged in China.

“I am sure everyone will wish Hugh well and I know a great many people will be eagerly following his progress at the Paralympics when they are held in March. He has become a shining light for many and will do us proud in Beijing.”
