Daley appears as Glasgow 2014 ambassador
9 September 2013
British diver Tom Daley marked his first media appearance since being named as a Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games ambassador by abseiling from the iconic Finnieston Crane on the banks of the River Clyde.
Daley met fans in the Scottish city and told a packed audience about his hopes for Glasgow 2014 and the other sports he loves to watch including Badminton, Rugby 7s and Gymnastics.
The Olympic bronze medallist - who delighted his Scottish fans by wearing a kilt in the Glasgow 2014 tartan - also took part in a special dance routine with official Glasgow 2014 Mascot Clyde.
"I really loved my first experience of Glasgow today - abseiling from the Finnieston Crane was incredible, I met hundreds of my fans in the Fruitmarket and I had a go at playing Lawn Bowls at the Kelvingrove venue," said Daley.
"What a friendly city! What a welcome! It's obvious that the atmosphere here for the Games will be awesome and I can't wait to be part of it all.
"I know there's just one week for people to get their ticket applications in and I'd urge everyone to be part of this once in a lifetime event. Today was just a taste of what's to come next year and I’m really excited to come back to defend my Commonwealth title in front of a brilliant home crowd."
Ticket applications can be made on glasgow2014.com/tickets or via postal applications forms distributed nationwide with the Official Ticketing Guide. The four-week ticketing phase closes at 6pm on 16 September.
