Scotland needs more winners - all kinds of winners - in sport and in life. And with the Olympics heading to London and the Commonwealth Games coming to Glasgow, we now have the major catalysts to inspire us to be winners. But as a nation we need to overcome our natural reserve and tendency to underperform when it really matters. We need to find new levels of self-belief and optimism. We need more winning role models: more Chris Hoys, Alex Fergusons, Andy Murrays and Liz McColgans.
