We all need a role model to give us that much needed boost and for some just watching the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, competing in our own fair city will be enough to spark them into action.

But there's nothing like homegrown talent right here in Glasgow to inspire us to make lifestyle changes like the newest members of SportScotland's Young People's Sport Panel, Fatemeh Nokhbatolfoghahai and Hanna Dines, who are shouting from the rooftops that everyone deserves a chance and their passion to make a difference is truly amazing.

The Evening Times Active 2014 campaign has been gathering momentum and every week we've highlighted huge achievements by individuals, communities and businesses in their determination to stay healthy and get fit.

Our partners Glasgow Life, SportScotland and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde have shown tremendous commitment to helping us live healthier lives and encouraging us to make changes, however small, by creating opportunities in our communities like setting up sports hubs.
