Glasgow celebrates 100 days to go

Glasgow 2014 has marked 100 days to go until the start of the Commonwealth Games with a stunning aerial shot of Hampden Park, Scotland’s national football stadium temporarily transformed into an athletics venue for the Games.

The venue for track and field had a giant ‘100’ painted onto the grass infield for an iconic image which shows the still in-construction running track for the first time.

Hampden will be the centrepiece of the Games with more than a thousand athletes in over 48 events in seven days of competition.

A revolutionary solution has raised the stadium surface by almost two metres, gaining the width and length required for a world-class athletics arena.

With the clock counting down to the start of the Games, Glasgow 2014 will later today reveal the the creative elements that will form the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Medal Ceremony, including the unveiling of the medals themselves.
