There are many to choose from but amongst the best must be Alan Wells the 100m sprinter who won Olympic gold (when all athletes were clean) in Moscow. The Americans weren't there but he probably would still have won.
Also Kenny Dalglish the Celtic and Liverpool footballer who won every major honour with Liverpool and then became a great manager.
These two are the tops but I'll invent Hamish McLagganallichie the caber tosser of Killiecrankie just for good measure.
My favourite Burn's poem? Ode To a Louse. An absolute classic.
I'm torn between Eric Liddell (Chariots of Fire-Fame) and Sir Chris Hoy (Track Cyclist), but on balance I'd have to go with Eric. This is not to say that I will not change my mind. Who knows what accomplishments Sir Chris may achieve after he retires from the track! But for me the accolade goes to the whole person and not just their performance. Wikipedia have a good article on Eric's life and achievements. Tony.
