A host of athletes that we have worked with on different aspects of their online brand will compete at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later this month.

Young England hockey star Harry Martin will be part of the England team to compete at the games. For Harry, it’s his second Commonwealth Games representing England after finishing fourth in Dehli four years ago as a 17 year old.

“I am very excited to be playing in another Commonwealth Games,” said a delighted Martin.

“We are determined to be in that gold medal match. I am really looking forward to playing in front of the British crowd again after the Olympics in London. I am sure Scotland will give us a great welcome.”

“It’s been a busy summer for us already with the World Cup in Holland, and the Investec tournament coming up in July. It is great for us as we have already gelled as a team and are looking to build upon the performances so far.

England will play against Trinidad and Tobago (24/07), Malaysia (27/07), New Zealand (29/07), and Canada (31/07) at the Games.

“They will all be tough matches.” Harry Martin

“They will all be tough matches. We’ve played Malaysia in the World Cup earlier this month and we know that New Zealand will be one of the stronger teams in the tournament.”

“We will prepare for each game and know that we want to be in a good position in the group to set-up a good semi final tie for us.”

Harry is part of the English team alongside Steve Lewis (Pole Vault), Dan Greaves (discus), Greg Rutherford (long jump), Christine Ohoroughu (400m) and Michael Rimmer (800m).

Pole Vaulter Steve Lewis will be hoping to add a gold medal to his Commonwealth Games collection, which includes a silver from doha, and a bronze from Melbourne.

Of the home nation, Libby Clegg runs in the T35 100m whilst Jamie Bowie will be on the track for Scotland in the 4x400m. Ben Reynolds is in action in the 110 hurdles for Northern Ireland and Kemar Bailey-Cole for Jamaica.
