At 17-years-old Samantha Kinghorn is the youngest person to be chosen for the 2014 Commonwealth Games team.
She took up wheelchair racing after an accident at her family farm left her paralysed in 2010.
"I'm absolutely ecstatic. I hoped I would be selected, but actually seeing it written on the screen is amazing.
"When I started 2 years ago I thought it would be a little hobby to take me out, I didn't ever think it would take me this far but I am so pleased it has."
