Libby Clegg's dad Peter tells ITV Border he had tears in his eyes as the 26-year-old from Newcastleton won Paralympic gold in the T11 100m.
A talk will be held in Newcastleton tonight to discuss the prospect of extending the Borders Railway through the village following in the tracks of the old Waverely line.
Campaign for Borders Rail spokesman Simon Walton says it's important isolated areas like Newcastleton are reconnected via the railway.
Mr Walton says there's enough political will to deliver the project and the extension shouldn't take as long as the current railway did.
Newcastleton's Libby Clegg has won gold 100 metres at the Commonwealth Games.
Clegg, who is visually impaired, ran with her guide Mikail Huggins in the para-sport T12 100 metre final at Hampden Park this evening.
She achieved a season's best time of 12.20 seconds winning Scotland's first gold medal in the athletics.
A 40-foot bridge has been put into place in Newcastleton to improve access for outdoor enthusiasts.
The bridge, which has cost more than £130,000, has been funded by local community, the Forestry Commission and the Borders Council. The bridge is expected to be in operation in May.
Police and Fire and Rescue Services have joined forces in the Scottish Borders to provide the first shared emergency service station in Scotland.
The station, based in Newcastleton, provides Police Scotland with their own office space within the fire station.
A local Community Officer and fire and rescue service staff will share facilities, with the aim of providing the community with a local shared service.
Shaun Turnbull, Chairman for Newcastleton Community Council, said:"This is brilliant for the town, particularly older people.
"The deterrent of having a visible police presence is very reassuring. Who knows, this might be an idea that could be rolled out across Scotland."
Swimmer James Clegg, from Newcastleton, came 8th in his 100m freestyle final at the Paralympics. Clegg, who is blind, already has one bronze. The freestyle was not his favourite race but he still managed a personal best of 55 .94.
