“I am sure that everyone is excited at the prospect of the Games getting underway in the coming days and I know the athletes will be feeling the very same way as the countdown to the action continues . Now is their time to shine I know they will give it their all on the global stage.’’

Minister for Sport Maree Todd said: “Minister for Sport, Maree Todd said:
