Bath athletes feature on BBC Glasgow 2014 preview

29 June 2014

A punchy new preview to the BBC’s Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games coverage featuring two athletes based at the University of Bath has now gone live.

Film crews working for the BBC filmed swimmer Michael Jamieson and judo player Emmanuel Nartey at the University of Bath Sports Training Village for the preview film.

Jamieson, who trains at British Swimming’s National Centre for Swimming at the University, has been selected to compete for Scotland at Glasgow 2014 at his second Commonwealths following his 200m breaststroke silver in Delhi four years ago.

Nartey, who trains on Team Bath’s judo programme, represents Ghana at the Glasgow Games. He competed for Ghana the last time the sport was on the Commonwealth programme, at the Manchester 2002 Games.

The BBC’s film, which runs for just over 90 seconds, is called Commonwealth Games 2014: Welcome to the ‘Friendly Games’.  You can view it on the BBC Sport website.

Jamieson and Nartey are among 61 athletes with University of Bath links selected to date to compete at Glasgow 2014. They will represent nine countries in 10 sports.
