Steve Waterston Sporting Hero

Congratulations to Edinburgh Athlete and Coach Steve Waterson on being selected as Sporting Hero in the Edinburgh Evening News Local Hero Awards.


Long-distance athlete Steven Waterston, 46, has run with a long cane since his significant sight loss which resulted from life-saving surgery. After overcoming a first brain haemorrhage in 2003, Steven was diagnosed with congenital condition arteriovenous malformation. A turbulent recovery process which also saw him suffer numerous blood clots, including a clot in his lung and pneumonia, makes the fact that Steven ran the Loch Ness marathon just eight months after his operation even more incredible.
