Falkirk long jumper Jade Nimmo was an invited guest helping Sir Chris Hoy and Susan Egelstaff launch the Commonwealth Games ticketing guide this week.

Nimmo headed for Glasgow’s Buchanan Street to meet up with the ambassadors and Olympic medallists - and Games mascot Clyde.

The guide sets out full details how everyone can be part of an accessible and affordable Commonwealth Games.

From today 350,000 copies of the guide will be available across Scotland and online at www.glasgow2014.com/tickets.

Nimmo is a former athlete for Falkirk Victoria Harriers and one of Scotland’s hopes for next year’s events.

Her former club had a depleted squad for Sunday’s third match in the Scottish Athletics League at Grangemouth and finished fifth overall.

There were wins for Alec Davidson in javelin and Kenneth Robertson in discus. He also took a podium place in the javelin and shot putt. Fraser Weir was on the podium twice for hammer and shot putt while Taylor Nimmo was third in high jump.

On the track Grant Plemnderleith was second in the 200m in 22.08 and Euan McCallum’s 64.12 earned him a silver spot in the 400m hurdles.

There were also podium places for Alec Davidson and Max mcNeill, both third in each of the 5km races.

The final match is next month in Aberdeen.
