It has been six months since the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games were officially opened at Celtic Park, marking the start of intense action, furious behind the scenes work and the largest sporting event Scotland has ever hosted.
Over 200 students from Scotland’s colleges and universities earned the opportunity to gain work experience at every arena, at each event and on every medal won. Now six months on, Glasgow’s Evening Times takes a look back at Glasgow Clyde College student Andrew Kerr’s journey and experiences at the heart of the action.

BBC Scotland spent time looking back at the Games too, featuring Glasgow Clyde College student Iain Henderson in the programme ‘When the Games Came to Glasgow‘. Iain directed and produced a short film entitled ‘What Makes Glasgow Great‘ played to a packed Celtic Park just before the televised Opening Ceremony began. His film is below.
