Legacy of Glasgow Commonwealth Games not the only factor in sustaining exercise

Car Hire Glasgow Airport would love to see many sporting initiatives taking place long after the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow is over.

The most challenging part of the legacy after the Glasgow Commonwealth Games is increasing the levels of physical activity and is something which can’t be guaranteed. The head of engagement and legacy for Glasgow 2014, Paul Zealey has said they were working to make sure people were encouraged to take more exercise as part of the ongoing impact of the Games.

Mr Zealey said “Legacy is always a difficult word and for some people what happens after the event is a bit cross your fingers and hope for the best. We prefer to talk about how people are benefiting now and in the run up to the Games from the investment and how the wider impact of that can be measured.”

It was one of the topics of discussion at the Scottish Physical Activity and Health Alliance at Murrayfield Stadium. Evidence for improvements in physical activity will be monitored over the coming twenty years. There was also talk at the conference about the failings of London 2012 in getting more in to physical activity.
