May 21, 2009

With 500 days to the opening of the Delhi Commonwealth Games, Scotland’s planning is in good shape.

CGS Chief Executive, Jon Doig, who will be taking on the role of Chef De Mission at the Games said: “We’ve had two Delhi site visits, we’re well underway with General Team Management and preparation for the Games is going well.

“The selection period opened on 1 May, and already a number of our athletes are making the standards, which are based on a top 8 equivalent or better. These early performances are extremely promising.”

Over the next 500 days Scotland’s athletes will focus on making the qualifying standards. Preparations will include visits to India for training and information gathering.
