Tom in Glasgow

“I’m really looking forward to seeing Glasgow and being part of the countdown to the Commonwealth Games. I want as many people as possible to get behind the Games and all the athletes.  It’ll be fun but tough. I have great memories of winning Gold in Delhi, so I’m totally focused on training and holding on to my title! See you on Sunday!” 


As ticket sales for Glasgow 2014 enter their final week, diving sensation Tom Daley has been unveiled as the latest and youngest Official Games Ambassador for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. To celebrate the announcement, he’s ready to meet fans this Sunday on his first official visit!
