Games Diary - 5 Reasons to remember the Games

Posted by Vicky Paterson on 8/4/2014 to Commonwealth Games 2014
The Commonwealth Games ended with a bang last night with a send off with a festival theme, bagpipes, ceilidh dancing and of course.... Kylie Minogue.  It has been a "Pure dead brilliant" couple of weeks (as described by Prince Imran, President of the Commonwealth Game Federation.) and Glasgow and it's people have put on an amazing show.  Although some of the biggest names in world sport failed to turn up for the Games there have been some serious moments to savour, and here our 5 favourites which illustrate exactly why Glasgow's have been the best Games ever.

We have reached the business end of the Commonwealth Games this weekend.  It is the second last day of competition today and the closing ceremony tomorrow night at Hampden Park where Australian and Scottish culture will clash, signalling the end of the games here and start of the build up to Gold Coast 2018.  Right now though back to the present and the events happening all over Glasgow today.

Games Diary - Days 8 & 9

Posted by Vicky Paterson on 8/1/2014 to Commonwealth Games 2014
Have been really enjoying watching all the athletics over the past couple of days, and having just watched Lynsey Sharp take silver in the 800m in a photo finish at Hampden. We are relishing in the amount of home grown sporting talent we have and have seen perform over the past 9 days.  With only two days to go we will wrap up what has been going on over the past two days, and look forward to seeing the world fastest man in action tonight.
