Parades and Preparation


This Commonwealth Games was Scotland's best ever, with a total medal haul of 53, 19 gold, 16 silver and 19 bronze. Celebrations were in order.

Ross was one of the athletes who took part in the Scottish Athletes Parade, which started at Kelvingrove Park and ended at George Square where the athletes were greeted by a crowd 5000-strong.

The group of 200 athletes which Ross was part of, traveled the route on seven large trailers, waving flags and banners with thank yous for the support Scotland has given their athletes this year.

More on the parade is available on the BBC Website.

However, with the celebrations dying down, and days moving on, Ross is already looking onto his goals for the future. His next major championship will be the European Championships in Berlin starting on the 18th August with the 100m Breaststroke, where he will be up against his rival and now teammate, Adam Peaty, who won the 100m in the Commonwealth Games.
