Glasgow 2014: heartwarming tales

So it’s the last day of the 20th Commonwealth games and I will be telling you all later how the day went but for now here are a few lovely stories of what happened over the course of these Glasgow games…

1. One of the athletes learned his sport through watching YouTube videos, he got Gold!

2. Women’s Boxing was one of the sports for the first time in Commonwealth History. England’s Nicola Adams was one of the Gold medalists.

3. Athletes from some of the islands did not have any boxing boots to compete in, when they went to a gym in Glasgow someone spotted this and took the whole team down to the sports shop and bought them all boxing boots, one of them won gold.

4. One of the nations teams went to a bike shop to get their bikes fixed, the owner gave them all brand new bikes and kits to compete in.
