At Cardiff 1958

The standard of competition at the Cardiff Games was very impressive.  Ten world records were broken and many new Commonwealth records were established.

With one gold and two silver in the pool, swimmer Ian Black was undoubtedly the star of the Scottish Team but other golds came from the boxers Dick McTaggart and  John Brown and in Weightlifting from Philip Caira, while Peter Heatly contributed yet another gold in the Diving events.

The Athletics results proved disappointing but on the whole Scotland’s final tally of five gold, five silver and three bronze medals was extremely satisfying.
