With the Olympics under way, we want to wish all the Scottish athletes heading to the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics good luck this summer.
We’re joining the National Lottery in sending good luck messages to all the Team GB and Paralympics GB athletes competing in Japan.
So far for the Scots in Tokyo, Duncan Scott has become one of Britain's most successful Olympians. A hat-trick of medals, two silvers and one gold, takes his total to five. Only five British athletes have won more. There was also podium success for rowers Harry Leask and Angus Groom won silver in the Quadruple Sculls
Jamie Murray was a late replacement for Dan Evans in the men's doubles tennis, taking the total number of Scots competing at the Tokyo Olympics to 53.
Since National Lottery funding for performance sport began in 1997, 864 medals have been won by Britain’s Olympians and Paralympians.
National Lottery players raise £36m every week for good causes. Since the National Lottery began in 1994, £43b has been raised for good causes, that money has supported over 635,000 projects.
