Hot 100 2012: Team GB

A roll call of the Scottish Olympians who helped Britain's Olympic squad to victory

Return to complete Hot 100 2012 index

There’s no denying that 2012 was the Year of British Sport (2013 looks set to be the Year of the Lie-Down before it all kicks off again for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow). And yes, yes, the Olympic squad might technically be called Team GB, with the whole of the British Isles sharing in the glory, but this is the Hot 100 of Scottish cultural figures, and, as such, we’re here to sing the praises of those who lay their hats north of the border. Sir Chris Hoy (Hot 100 #14) and surely-soon-to-be-Sir Andy Murray (Hot 100 #2) were the biggest stars of Scotland’s reign, but there were plenty of other Scots riding, jumping, rowing and swimming their way into the history books.
