Olympic silver medalist cyclist Ross Edgar

Olympic silver medalist cyclist Ross Edgar and star swimmer Hannah Miley were named in the 191-member Scotland squad, including 83 women athletes, for the Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Scotland athletes will compete in 16 out of the 17 disciplines, leaving netball.

Edgar had won a silver at Beijing Olympics and Miley has won numerous international titles in swimming. The two have 30 medals between them.

Also included are many Commonwealth medallists like David Carry, Caitlin McClatchey, Robbie Renwick, Kris Gilchrist and Andy Hunter. 14-year-old diver Grace Reid, who finished fourth at the European Championships last week in the 3m springboard individual event, is the youngest member. While 72-year old legendary bowls player Willie Wood, who will be making a record eighth Commonwealth Games appearance, is the oldest athlete in the Scotland squad.

Australia announce tennis squad
Sydney: Australia announced a second string tennis squad for the Games without their star players Lleyton Hewitt and Samantha Stosur. The eight-member team will be headed by Peter Luczak among men's and Anastasia Rodionova among women's. Australian Commonwealth Games Association CEO, Perry Crosswhite, said the timing of the Games meant some players had little choice but to defend ranking points. Squad: Men: Matt Ebden, Paul Hanley, Greg Jones, Peter Luczak; Women: Jessica Moore, Sally Peers, Anastasia Rodionova, Olivia Rogowska.
