Seb Coe 'impressed' by Glasgow 2014 preperations

Glasgow 2014 Chairman Lord Smith welcomed London 2012 Chairman Lord Sebastian Coe to Strathclyde Park on his first ever visit to a Glasgow 2014 satellite venue. A strong element of Glasgow's bid to host the Commonwealth Games in 2014 was that 70% of venues were already in place and today Lord Coe spoke of how impressed he was of Glasgow 2014's preparations.

Strathclyde Park already has an established international Rowing facility and regularly hosts Triathlon events, but it will be upgraded to ensure the best possible experience for athletes and spectators at Glasgow 2014.
