(377)  SCOTS LAW AT THE OLYMPICS

Scots law – or at least Scots law-trained people – featured at the Athens Olympics held in August 2004.  The rower Katherine Grainger, who is an Edinburgh law graduate, won her second Olympic silver medal, this time in the women’s coxless pairs (in the Sydney Olympics of 2000 she was a member of the women’s quad team).  Mark Clark, also an Edinburgh LLB and formerly employed by Dundas & Wilson, was manager of the Iraq Olympic team.  He got there from Saltire Court by dint of his membership of the Territorial Army and a posting in that capacity to Iraq.  The rest of his story, in particular how his training methods differed from those of Saddam Hussein, can be picked up from http://sport.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=1137&id=962642004.  Congratulations to both Katherine and Mark on their efforts.
