Commonwealth Games: Shooters & triathlete join Scotland team

By Jane Lewis BBC Scotland Commonwealth Games reporter

Eight shooters and one triathlete have been named in the Scotland team for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, bringing the total to 36.

The next tranche of athletes will be named in the spring.

Jonathan Hammond and Jennifer McIntosh are included and will be aiming to add to the seven medals they won between them at the Delhi Games in 2010.

David McNamee makes the team, a reward for strong finishes in the Triathlon ITU World Championship Series.

The sport will feature in the Commonwealth Games programme for a third time, having first been included in Manchester in 2002, then in Melbourne four years later.
