Now in 2014, and with only 200 days to go until the Games, Commonwealth Games Scotland has released a new set of athlete images depicting ‘ones to watch’.

The 10 photos have been shot at iconic locations around Scotland, with some of Team Scotland’s prospective team members and medal hopefuls.

The strong common theme of the photos is ‘Proud’ and is a clear demonstration of what it means for athletes from across the length and breadth of the country to represent Team Scotland in Glasgow next summer. The striking images have been taken by Glasgow photographers Alistair Devine and Stuart Gray.

Calling for the Scottish public to get behind the team, as they start the final leg of their journey to the Games, 400m hurdler Eilidh Child said: “These amazing photos show just how much it means to all of the athletes to represent Team Scotland at the Commonwealth Games this year.

“It was a real privilege to have been chosen as one of the athletes to take part in the project. I hope they inspire the Scottish public to cheer us on all the way and I for one am determined to do Scotland proud next summer at Hampden Park.”

From Eilean Donan Castle at Kyle of Lochalsh to the beaches of Carnoustie and Edinburgh Castle and Forth Rail Bridge the images depict the magic that Scotland has to offer as a place to live, work, visit and of course host major sporting events.

Michael Cavanagh, Chairman of Commonwealth Games Scotland added: “With the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games only 200 days away, these fantastic new images showcase some of our incredible athletes at iconic locations across Scotland and demonstrate how proud they are to be part of it.

“I hope they convey to the public the excitement and commitment of the athletes as we rapidly approach our home Games and encourage everyone to play their part and cheer on the Team.”
