World Wheelchair Curling Championships

As reported in the Berwick Advertiser, 16th May 2019.
Cornhill man Gary Logan recently won a silver medal at the World Wheelchair Curling Championships in Stirling. The competition provided the first opportunity to gain crucial qualification points for Paralympics GB towards the next Winter Paralympic Games in Bejing in 2022.
Gary, 48, is a familiar face at the Active Northumberland Swan Centre in Berwick which he visits four times a week to carry out weight and cardiovascular training as part of his exercise regime.
He was introduced to the sport 10 years ago by a friend following a life-changing accident which left him in a wheelchair. He fell in loe with curling from the start and has played regularly, progressing to the GB Scotalnd performance squad and working his way up into the Scotland squad, of which he has been a member for seven months.
Gary said, “I remember when I got the call up to the team; I was absolutely beside myself and was just brimming with pride and excitement. It is always an honour to be selected to represent your country and to win a silver medal within seven months of entering the team and on a world championship debut is a dream come true and testmanet to the extremely hard work of the whole squad.”
There is a lot of commitment and training involved. Every other week Gary travels to Stirling for ice training and then on alternate weeks he trains at the Swan Centre working on strength and aerobic training.
