About Samoa 2015
The fifth edition of the Commonwealth Youth Games was held in the Pacific island nation of Samoa from 5-12 September 2015. Sports were contested across two venue clusters in the capital city of Apia, with many venues built when the country hosted the 2007 South Pacific Games and upgraded for the 2015 Youth Games.
Team Scotland won medals in five of the eight sports in which team members competed (Swimming, Athletics, Boxing, Tennis and Weightlifting) and 18 athletes enjoyed medal success with 100% of the boxers and the track and field team going home with medals.
With the popularity of the Youth Games growing world-wide, this was Scotland’s smallest team ever selected at just 28 athletes and yet their return on medals stands amongst the highest at 75%.
