Louise Martin, Chairman, CGCS said “We have selected a strong team, with everyone who has met the selection criteria going to Manchester regardless of overall numbers. Our minimum target is to improve on our medal tally in Kuala Lumpur and I am confident that this can be achieved given our thorough preparation and thanks to the support of our team sponsor Bank of Scotland, sport scotland and many others.”

Following feedback from the 1998 Games, the athletes will be supported by an increased team staff ..., which again reflects the requirement for increased medical and sports science support including doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists and analysts.

The main party of the Team will travel to Manchester on Monday 22 July on a specially chartered Virgin Train leaving from Glasgow.

The full athletics team are:

Kathy Butler (subject to fitness), Sara Jane Cattermole, Lesley Clarkson, Gillian Cooke, Sinead Dudgeon, Carey Easton, Alison Higgins, Ruth Irving, Lorna Jackson*, Lynne MacDougall, Lee McConnell, Gemma Nicol, Hayley Ovens, Gillian Palmer, Susan Scott, Mhairi Walters, Shirley Webb, Aileen Wilson, Chris Baillie, Ian Mackie*, Jon McCallum, Richard McDonald, Christian Nicolson, Iain Park, Simon Pride, Jamie Quarry, Darren Ritchie, Bruce Robb*, Glen Stewart, 4x400m Relay Place (tbc).
