"Next Great Moment" For Sport In 2014

Glasgow 2014 will be the next great moment in British sport.

That according to the vice president of the International Olympic Committee.

Sir Craig Reedie says The Commonwealth Games are a perfect opportunity to build on the success of the Olympics.

The former badminton champion addressed MSPs made the comments at a reception at the Scottish Parliament, which was also attended by Glasgow 2014 chief executive David Grevemberg.

``Staging the London 2012 Games this summer was a tremendous team effort that harnessed the talents of every nation in the UK,'' Sir Craig said. 

``As we hand over the baton to Glasgow 2014, we do so in the knowledge that the Commonwealth Games will be the next great moment in the UK's golden decade of sport.''
