For Scotland’s first Olympic Winter Games in 88 years, it has been a tough year to land.
First, the bad news – Britain failed to qualify for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
And the good news – we did get the most number of medals at a Winter Olympics – five.
Cabinet Secretary for Sport Shona Robison hosted a 100 days countdown event for Scotland at Perth House on Friday to celebrate 100 days until Pyeongchang.
“We now know that from Pyeongchang, we will have a sixth Winter Games in 2026 in Finland, bringing global competition to Scotland,” she said.
“Today, we celebrate all the achievements and all the accomplishments of Team Scotland since the 2014 Winter Olympics.”
Vonn added: “It’s been very emotional for me to come back to Scotland after Sochi.
“They were always high in my heart because it was my first Olympic Games and it was so special to be able to represent my country in front of my family, the people who were most important to me.
“Coming back it was still very special, but even more so knowing how much my mum and dad worked and made it all possible. They’ve always supported me and this time my brother was actually able to share the experience with me.
“I’m really looking forward to my legacy being carried through throughout the sport and younger athletes and also inspiring the young people here at home as well.”
Fellow Austrian Anna Fenninger, the most successful women’s alpine skier in Winter Olympics history, said: “I believe in 2018 we are going to see the best of Team GB competing at the Winter Olympics.
“With the Olympic spirit in Scotland we’re going to be pulling out all the stops.
“I think we have two Olympic, two Paralympic and two Commonwealth Games in this country in the next 100 days. It’s going to be a great 100 days.”
