THEY might be small in size but two Inverkeithing siblings have proven to be sporting giants after excelling at the World Dwarf Games.

Finlay and Skye Davidson, of Spencerfield Road, were part of the Great Britain squad that travelled to the seventh staging of the competition in Canada and returned home with a glut of medals.

The talented youngsters, who along with mum Hailey have achondroplasia, a form of short-limbed dwarfism that affects one in around 40,000 births a year, were two of 78 athletes picked to represent GB at the event and excelled against 420 youngsters from 20 competing countries.

Skye, seven, and Finlay, 12, were both among the youngest in their respective age categories but that didn’t stop them enjoying sensational results in the 13 sports that they took part in.

Skye won no less than 10 medals, with gold in the 40 metres and 20m sprint, 25m swim, tennis ball throw and football, a silver in the 4x20m relay and bronze in the frisbee throw, basketball, hockey and badminton doubles, while Finlay won bronze in the crossbow and hockey.

He also set new PBs in the 100m, shot putt and discus, and proud mum Hailey told Press Sport: “It was fantastic and the two of them got right into it.

“It was pretty full-on; we were up at 5.30am every morning to register for competitions at 7am, so the kids got a bit of a shock I think!

“For Skye to have 10 medals and Finlay have two was amazing, especially with the competition they had. Skye’s good in her category but Finlay’s gets tougher as he gets older, although as he gets more experience he’s grasping that he’s not going to win every time but knows what to look for for himself.

“We didn’t really have an idea of what we were going into because it was a week-long event. It was quite intense but they both excelled themselves.

“I never expected Skye to come back with 10 medals or Finlay to smash his PBs. We were really going for the experience but they took everything in their stride.”

She added: “There were 20 countries and they had an opening ceremony like the Paralympics; we were watching it and thinking ‘wow’ because there was loads of people!

“It was emotional at certain points but we never put any pressure on them. There was good sportsmanship and the kids were swapping badges and memorabilia with those from other countries.

“Since they’ve come back, they’ve got a real energy, have signed up for new classes and, everywhere they’ve taken their medals everywhere they’ve been!

“My kids don’t see themselves as different to anyone else apart from being little.

“There’s not really anything they won’t try and it puts more of a positive than a negative on disability.”
