Commonwealth Games Organizers Announce Ambassadors, Ban Smoking At Venues
Published August 13, 2013
NO SMOKING: In Edinburgh, Lyndsay Buckland wrote "smoking will be banned around sporting venues" at the Commonwealth Games. Smoking "will not be allowed within venues, in line with the ban on smoking in public places, and be prohibited within site perimeters." In addition, "sales of tobacco will banned at competition venues as well as in the Athletes' Village." However, "smoking will be allowed within designated areas at the accommodation for athletes." Glasgow 2014 said this fell within World Health Organization guidelines as to what constitutes a "smoke-free" sporting event. The organizers said the measures made it the "most progressive smoking policy at any major sporting event held in Scotland" (SCOTSMAN, 8/12).
BOLT CONSIDERS GLASGOW: The BBC reported world 100m champion Usain Bolt said that "he is keen to make a first Commonwealth Games appearance in Glasgow next year." Bolt: "On 'off-years' I try not to stress myself too much, but I've never been to the Commonwealths so that's something I'm thinking about. It's always something good to add to the resume" (BBC, 8/11).
