Common Wealth Games 2014

Best in 84-year history

3 Aug, 2014

Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive Mike Hooper hails Glasgow 2014 as “the standout Games in the history of the movement”. After 11 days of action across 17 sports, the event came to a close at Hampden Park with hosts Scotland finishing fourth overall with a record haul of 19 golds and a best-ever tally of 53 medals.

In my view, they are the standout Games in the history of the movement. The way in which the people of Scotland and Glasgow have embraced the Games right from the get-go has been incredible.
