BORDERS athlete Samantha Kinghorn has been voted 'Female Athlete of the Meet' at the World Para Athletics Championships.

It comes after the 21-year-old won two gold medals and a bronze at the games in London.

The public took to Twitter to pick their favourite on the British Athletics Supporters Club page, and the star from Gordon received 42 per cent of the overall vote.

It's been a memorable week for Sammi, who was also surprised with a homecoming party in the village last night.

Locals organised bunting, banners and balloons to decorate the main street and lined up to welcome her from the airport.
