A PRODIGY from Fishcross came first overall in the Scottish Gymnastics Championship in his category.

Ramsay Milloy, aged 11, earned two gold medals, a silver and two bronze at the finals, held in Motherwell over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, February 17 and 18.

The youngster, who hails from Fishcross, finished first place overall for his stellar performances in the under 12 category.

Speaking to the Advertiser, Ramsay’s dad David Milloy was beaming with pride seeing his son’s hard work pay off.

“We’re just really proud of him,” he said. “He just works so hard, he trains five times a week over 21 hours.

“He’s earned this and he deserves this because he works really hard for it. He puts a lot of hours into training.

“He enjoys it as well, he always wants to train which is a really good thing for his age.”

Ramsay competed on six pieces of apparatus throughout the tournament, picking up gold medals on rings and high bar, a silver medal on the pommel horse and bronze medals on the vault and the parallel bars.

His medal performance enabled him to beat off some tough competition to take home the overall first award for the tournament.

Ramsay’s interest in gymnastics started when he was four years old in the Hillfoots, before moving to Stenhousemuir for a few years.

Ramsay is no stranger to winning, however, as he won the Scottish Grades championship last year.

He joined a squad representing Scotland in Telford in 2023 as well, and has picked up a number of medals from his hard work, with this being his biggest achievement so far.

He now trains five days a week at West Lothian Gymnastics Club in Livingston and will be looking ahead to representing Scotland at the GB regionals in London in May.

“He’ll be joining a six-boy squad from Scotland,” David continued. “He’s in the performance pathway with Scottish Gymnastics so he takes part in camps at the sportscotland facility in Largs.

“He’s in the Scottish Gymnastics system which will help him develop his performance.”
