Commonwealth Games boost for city gymnast Ryan McKee

A TALENTED gymnast is jumping for joy after a welcome cash boost from a Scots firm.

Ryan McKee, 15, of Glasgow - who is hoping to compete in the city's 2014 Commonweath Games - was handed s1500 by building firm Laidlaw Scott.

Also sharing in the windfall from the company's Future Champions sponsorship programme, are athlete Sean Fontana and cyclist Greg Brown, both from Glasgow.

They were helped out with funding in a bid to secure places to compete at the London Olympics in 2012 and the Glasgow games.

Ryan said: "I want to make the Great Britain squad and represent Scotland, and the help is definitely going to give me a better chance of doing it."
