GLASGOW badminton star Imogen Bankier has won the Lonsdale Trophy by being named Scottish Sportsperson 2011 at the annual Commonwealth Games Dinner.
The 23-year-old also received a cheque for £1000 and is the first badminton player to claim the award.
Commonwealth Games Scotland chairman Michael Cavanagh said: "2011 has been another hugely successful year for Scotland's top sportspeople, which has made it tougher than ever to select one winner for this award.
"But Imogen has had a wonderful year, which of course includes her fantastic silver medal at the world championships.
"She has shown strength and determination to get to where she is just now, and her mindset will no doubt see her success continue.
"Imogen is a worthy Lonsdale Trophy winner and I would like to wish her all the best as she looks towards London 2012, and the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014."
A delighted Imogen said: "It's a great honour to win this prestigious award and I would like to thank everyone who has helped me with the success that has come my way in the past year.
"Hopefully there is still more to come from me."
