Monday, April 14, 2014

To celebrate 100 days until the start of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, the Glasgow 2014 Organizing Committee unveiled the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals that athletes will be vying for on April 14, 2014. The Games, which will be held July 23 to August 3, will be the largest ever multi-sport games held on Scottish soil.

In preparation for the Games, Commonwealth Games Canada and Swimming Canada have announced the 33 athletes who will represent Canada in Swimming and Para-Swimming. Among the Canadian contingent are Ontario’s Martha McCabe, Brittany MacLean, Michelle Williams, Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson, Marni Oldershaw, Sinead Russell, Evan White and Gamal Assaad. Swimming Canada selected its Commonwealth Games nominees after the country’s best swimmers competed at the Canadian Swimming Trials in Victoria, BC and the Can-Am Para-Swimming Championships in Miami, Florida.

The Canadian team headed to the Games is expected to include 265 athletes and close to 100 coaches and support staff, Canada’s largest team ever fielded for a Games hosted outside of Canada. Commonwealth Games Canada is expected to announce the entire Canadian Team, as well as the team’s flag bearer in early July 2014.
