SNOWBOARDER Danny McCormick won gold at the British Universities Indoor Snowsports Championships in Castleford recently.

As well as picking up a medal, Danny (18), from Bearsden, was also presented with a new snowboard worth £300.

The design undergraduate had previously won gold in the previous three events of the series, which means he is now the overall winner of the whole series.

His latest win has also secured him a sports scholarship at Dundee University, where he is studying.

The former Bearsden Academy student, right, said: “It was a slope-style championship and I was hoping for a good position even though there was some pretty good talent. Overall there must have been 40 competitors in the final.”

The sporting star has been invited to attend another British University event in Austria this month but is unable to attend because of university commitments.
