Tributes have been paid to the first female president of Scottish Athletics after her death at the age of 82.
Joan Watt has been hailed as a “teacher, mentor and influencer” by the organisation following her 50 year career.
She was also a former chair of the Scottish Athletics and was made an honorary life member of the governing body in 2005.
A chartered physiotherapist, Joan was first involved in Scotland teams at the Edinburgh Games of 1970 and served in physio roles through to 2002 and as team manager for shooting for two further Games.
She died at her care home last week.
A statement released by Scottish Athletics on Tuesday said: “Joan was a significant figure in athletics for many years.
“We send our deepest sympathy to family and friends.”
And former President and current Convenor of our Track and Field Commission, Leslie Roy, said: “This is such sad news.
“Joan was a huge influence in Scottish Athletics for many years from grassroots through to the highest level being involved in the SWAL and Scottish and British teams as physio, chair, committee member.
“But she was much more than that – Joan was a teacher, mentor, influencer.”
