GLASGOW (Reuters) – Hailed as the best ever Commonwealth Games by Federation president Prince Tunku Imran, Glasgow 2014 celebrated the end of a memorable 20th edition with a colourful closing ceremony on Sunday.
In a sporting festival recognised for the warmth of its welcome, the ceremony at Hampden Park fittingly celebrated the event loudly and proudly, much like the spectators have done at each sporting venue.
“The Commonwealth Games are known as the Friendly Games. Glasgow has succeeded in making them even more than that,” Prince Imran told the rejoicing crowd.
“These have truly been the people’s Games. Scotland, you have welcomed the athletes of the Commonwealth and have contributed to them realising their dreams on one of the world’s great sporting stages.
“Scotland, and Glasgow, you really have delivered in every aspect the best Games ever. Glasgow you were pure, dead brilliant.”
