FASLANE submariner Brett Wild and his Paralympic skiing partner Millie Knight have picked up the Sporting Teamwork prize at the Nordoff Robbins Scottish Sporting Awards.

Brett, who was partially-sighted Millie’s guide partner at the recent Paralympics in South Korea, said he was “honoured” to have been nominated after the pair brought home two silver medals and a bronze from Pyeongchang.

The pair were presented with the award at a glittering ceremony at the Prestonfield House Hotel in Edinburgh last week.

Brett said: “We felt so honoured and privileged to even be nominated so to come and win was fantastic.

“The medals haven’t sunk in yet so we haven’t had time to take it all in – we haven’t even been home yet!”

Millie added: “I’ve always dreamed of getting a Paralympic medal and to do it with my best friend standing beside me was amazing.

“To come up here and win this is really special.”

The pair have won 19 medals – eight gold, nine silver and two bronze – since they began skiing together in February 2016.

They got off to a flying start in their first race in the Paralympics, winning silver in the women’s downhill event, just 0.86 seconds behind the winners.

And the women’s Super G event the following day brought more success thanks to a time of one minute and 33.76 seconds – enough for second place.

They added a bronze in the women’s slalom on the final day in Pyeongchang, taking ParalympicsGB’s medal haul to seven – a British Winter Games record.
