The Team Behind The Team
Behind the success of Team Scotland is a group of very passionate people, who work tirelessly in the run up to and during each Commonwealth Games and Youth Games to give our athletes every chance of achieving their ambitions.
In addition to Commonwealth Games Scotland’s professional staff, additional personnel are carefully chosen to ensure that Team Scotland’s athletes receive the best preparation and support possible – allowing them to focus on putting years of hard work into a personal best performance on one of sport’s biggest stages.
Many of these experts come from within each sport’s national governing body or from the sportscotland Institute of Sport, allowing a seamless transition into the Games environment for athletes working within high performance programmes. Others are recruited from far and wide, as Team Scotland seek to bring new knowledge and skills to the team for each Games.
Team Scotland’s managers, coaches, medics, media officers, mechanics and performance analysts are all there to complement the work of each athlete’s personal support team, as they strive to reach their goal – a place in the final, a Commonwealth Games medal or to hear ‘Flower of Scotland’ played in their honour as they stand on the top step of the podium.
