Following on from Hampshire’s outstanding success at the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games where athletes from the county were involved with 10% of the GB medal total, the nations sporting expectation will now be drawn towards Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games beginning on the 23rd July.
On this occasion the athletes will be competing for their home nations across 17 different sports, some of which will have Paralympic events. This time Hampshire will have 26 sports men & women on show, many of whom will have been supported in their development by the Hampshire Talented Athlete Scheme operated and funded by Hampshire County Council.
We will be following their progress throughout the Games as many of the athletes continue on their journey towards World Class performance with Rio 2016 clearly in their sights.
