#Team14


I can't ever remember feeling as proud and inspired as I did soaking up the atmosphere and glory of London 2012. It must have made an impact – two years on and I'm still reminiscing... But it's time to move on. In 46 days, all sporting eyes will be on Glasgow for the XX Commonwealth Games, where the athletes will compete in 17 different sports, from aquatics to boxing, gymnastics to judo, lawn bowls to wrestling.

Whilst the 70 nations will be after the honour of taking home a clutch of medals, I've been given the very special honour of joining thirteen brilliant bloggers to cover all the goings on of Glasgow 2014. I am a very proud member of #Team14.

My first job, to follow the Queen's Baton Relay on its journey to Scotland. And it turns out, for this weekend at least, I won't be travelling far as it's in London this weekend. On 7th–8th June, the baton will be at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and bringing with it over 30 different sports for everyone to try. Test your grace with a bit of dance or your aim with some frisbee. Give mini cricket a go or turn your hand to wheelchair basketball. What better way to get the nation excited for another exciting summer of sport?!
