08 July 2002

Another Games veteran in the 18 strong squad is Willie Wood who is making a record seventh Commonwealt Games appearance.

Louise Martin, chairman of the Commonwealth Games Council for Scotland (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.
