I believe Alex Salmond and the Scottish Parliment are organising a reception for the Scolympians (as he calls them), but with a schedule like Andy's, attending things like this are always going to be tricky, such a shame really, it is always the same with the Sports Personality of the Year both the BBC one and the Scottish Sports Awards (which he won last year) they always clash with his pre AO training stint.
I really hate Alex Salmond calling them that. It sounds like a nasty disease!
Andy might be OK for this reception, if they schedule it properly. He usually returns to the UK after the USO before going on to the Far East, and also the off-season now lasts for 7 weeks instead of 5, which is why the WTF starts on 5 November this year, so Andy might be able to attend before going off to train in Miami. I would think though that the reception would be held as soon after the Olympics as possible.
