A trio of Scottish women have been inducted into a university's hall of fame for services to sport.

Three leading figures from the sporting worlds of hockey, hill and trail running and rugby officiating have been inducted into the University of Edinburgh’s Sports Hall of Fame.

Edinburgh alumni Sarah Robertson, Angela Mudge and Hollie Davidson have been honoured for their success at the highest level of their sport.

Sarah Robertson, who is Scotland’s most decorated hockey star, has achieved success at both club and international level, including an Olympic medal.

She has been selected as captain of the Scottish Women’s Hockey Team at this year’s 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

Angela Mudge has won Scottish, British and World Champion titles in hill and trail running, despite coming late to mountain racing and having a physical disability in childhood.

Hollie Davidson became Scottish Rugby’s first full-time female professional referee in 2017.

Since then, she has officiated at the highest level of the game including the Olympic and Commonwealth Games.

Jim Aitken MBE, director of sport and exercise at the University of Edinburgh said: “It’s an honour to welcome these three inspiring women into our Sports Hall of Fame. Each has contributed immeasurably in their chosen sport and demonstrates the University’s place as a leading destination for gifted students wanting to pursue their academic and sporting ambitions.”

The Hall of Fame inductees were welcomed by the University’s community of leading student sports stars during last night’s (Thursday 2 June) Blues and Colours Awards Dinner - Edinburgh’s annual celebration of sporting excellence.

Previous inductees include six-time Olympic gold medal-winning cyclist Sir Chris Hoy, Olympic gold medallist rower Dame Katherine Grainger, and Olympic 400 metre running champion Eric Liddell.

The University of Edinburgh’s Performance Programme has supported many of its athletes.

The programme provides funding, tailored fitness conditioning and sports medicine care, and access to top-class competition and training facilities, alongside advice and flexible study options to help students succeed on the world sporting stage.
