There is a sense of pride at the Car Hire Glasgow Airport branch with the Commonwealth Games now on the official countdown to the opening ceremony.
The countdown to the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 has cranked up, with the unveiling of the official countdown clock showing the number of days until the opening ceremony in July. It is part of official celebrations where all of the Commonwealth’s nations and territories take part in a celebrations day, held on the second Monday in March.
The occasion was marked in Glasgow, attended by Scottish swimmer Michael Jamieson, who joined school children at Hillhead Primary School. The silver medallist said, “It has been great to be here in Glasgow and celebrate Commonwealth Day, Sport Your Trainers and the switch on of the Glasgow 2014 clock. It just brings home to me how fast the clock is ticking to July. Glasgow 2014 is going to be one of the highlights of my career and I’m delighted to be playing a part in the run up to the Games in my home town as an ambassador.”
Shona Robison, Minister for Sport and the Commonwealth Games, said “Time is racing towards Glasgow 2014, what will be the best Commonwealth Games ever, and I for one cannot wait for the clock to reach zero. Commonwealth Day and the Games are about enjoying our connections with other countries, their people and their cultures, as we have been doing through the Queen’s Baton Relay and at home as we prepare to host the Commonwealth.”
