With the commonwealth Games coming to Glasgow this year I have managed to secure a pitch in my brothers’ garden for the triathlon, but not managed to secure any tickets as yet. But I just thought that I would give people some information on the new format for the games which could be very exciting.
Triathlon is one of the seventeen sports selected to take part in Glasgow 2014. This also sees the inclusion of a Mixed Relay event for the very first time at the Commonwealth Games. This innovative format consists of two men and two women. Each athlete completes a ‘super-sprint’ triathlon of swimming, biking and running, before tagging off to their next team mate. The triathlon action will take place in and around the Strathclyde Country Park on the outskirts of Glasgow. It is expected that the two triathlon events and the fascinating Home Nation permutations will attract unprecedented audiences supporting our male and female triathletes as they strive for Gold medal success.
