Cabinet Secretary for Commonwealth Games and Sport Shona Robison MSP:

It gives me great pleasure to extend my warmest wishes to all the athletes and their support teams representing Team Scotland at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

This will be the biggest ever programme of para-sport events integrated into the Commonwealth schedule.  You represent the finest that this nation has to offer and your selection shows you have the ambition, talent and dedication required to compete against the very best the Commonwealth is bringing to Glasgow.

I know you will give everything you have to show Scotland is a force to be reckoned with.  Good luck to each and every member of Team Scotland and enjoy these once-in-a-lifetime Games in front of an enthusiastic and passionate home crowd.

Go Scotland!
