The SKGB supports the aims and objectives of SAMH.

Everyone deserves the chance to experience the benefits that physical activity can bring to our mental health and wellbeing. But it can be hard to take the first step to getting more active, especially if you’re experiencing a mental health problem.
SAMH is tackling the barriers that prevent people with mental health problems from improving their physical fitness.

Congratulations to Amy Connell representing Team GB at the European Games in Minsk

Amy Connell – Athlete Blog 

My name is Amy Connell I am an international athlete for the Scotland national karate team and Team GB. I started karate when I was three years old and it has been a huge passion of mine that has grown ever since. I have represented Scotland at multiple European and World Championships since I was 14 years old bringing home two European bronze medals in cadet and junior categories and a World University bronze.

My sporting career like may others has been full of great triumphs alongside may obstacles, one major obstacle of mine was my injury after the Senior World Championships in Bremen 2014 where I placed 7th. I came home to find out I had two broken legs and told by many doctors that I wouldn’t be able to compete again. This was a devastating time in my life but I had a strong mindset that I could get back to competing at the top level again. It was a tough 2 years of rehabilitation mentally and physically but my first big competition back was the Paris Open in 2017 where I reached the final bringing home a silver medal. This year I became Senior European bronze medallist in Guadalajara which meant I qualified for the European Games in Minsk. I fly out to next week and I am very proud to be representing my club, country and family as part of Team GB at this huge multi-sport event.

Good luck Amy 

From all at the SKGB
