This section provides a history of many of Scotland's top athletes throughout the years. 


Initially, the biographies are being taken from the book, The Past Is a Foreign Country, by Colin Shields and Arnold Black. These have been updated and corrected where appropriate. The biographies are accompanied by statistical listings which did not appear in the book.


Athletes will be added to this page as the biographies are prepared.
