It’s coming home!!

As the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi draws to a close, the British athletes have impressed myself -and most of Britain I hope- and will leave India with pride and glory after grabbing fifty-one Gold medals between them. England have taken thirty-seven Gold medals over the twelve day event, including two for 16 year old Diving world champion Tom Daly. Elsewhere, cyclist David Millar, won Gold for Scotland in the men’s time trial event with Northern Ireland and Wales also taking Gold Medals from Boxing and Athletics.

  David Millar beat fellow Briton Alex Dowsett to clinch Scotland’s first ever gold medal in a road cycling event. Millar, 33, took 47 minutes 18.66 seconds to complete the 40km course. He said “It’s been my big goal all year, it feels great to win” 

   The success Millar and the rest of the British athletes have achieved in Delhi will hopefully be emulated in 2014 when Glasgow host the Commonwealth Games. During the closing ceremony today, the games will officially be handed over to Glasgow and the preparations can get underway. A total of 348 volunteer cast members were chosen from across Scotland, to collectively perform an 8 minute programme and showcase what creative talents the people of Scotland have to offer. 

  Despite a four year wait, I am incredibly excited for the arrival of the 2014 games and will definately make the long ONE hour trip through to Glasgow to see as many events as I can. Hopefully it will show visitors what Scotland is really about, and the majority of people will leave having seen it for themselves and developed their own opinion of the city and the locals (assuming they will develop a good opinion!!) Really… the main objective for 2014, is to put on a show and ensure a successful and enjoyable Commonwealth Games. No doubt in my mind that’ll be the case!
