Jim Anderson in Queen’s Birthday Honours List

Stirling Swimming's Jim Anderson was named in the Queen's Birthday
Honours list announced at the weekend. Jim is set to receive an OBE in
recognition of his services to swimming and Paralympic sport.

An MBE recipient in the 2005 New Year Honours list, Anderson (46) said
"I was shocked when I got the letter from the palace as I wasn't
expecting anything". The five times Paralympian from Broxburn is not
letting up any and is hard in training for the IPC European
Championships to be held later this year in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Jim returned form Beijing with four medals to take his total Paralympic
medal tally to seventeen, including six gold, four of which came from
the Athens Paralympics in 2004.
