08 July 2002

Scotland has announced the 21 swimmers who will be heading for the Games.

Olympic medallist Graeme Smith

The team includes 1998 Commonwealth medallist Alison Shepard and Olympic medallist Graeme Smith.

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.

The full swimming team are:

Kirsty Balfour, Louise Coull, Lara Ferguson, Kerry Martin, Pauline McFadyen, Samantha McNeilly, Karen Nisbet, Alison Sheppard, Kirsty Thomson, Cameron Black, Kenny Cairns, David Carry, Michael Cole, Todd Cooper, Ian Edmond, David Leith, Andrew Lindsay, Andrew Jameson, Paul Noble, Graeme Smith, Gregor Tait.
