Glasgow was the setting for Team England's best ever Commonwealth Games with a return to the top of the medals table for the first time since 1986.

Team England's largest ever team of more than 600 athletes and support staff included great names including Nick Matthew and Laura Massaro, both world champions in squash, Olympic triathlon champion Alistair Brownlee and bronze medallist brother Jonathan, 2012 Tour de France and Olympic time trial champion Sir Bradley Wiggins and many more.

It was a memorable year for Team England's artistic gymnasts. Claudia Fragapane (above) stole the headlines by winning four gold medals, the most of any English competitor at a single Games for 80 years, winning the team, all-around, vault and floor exercise crowns. Max Whitlock won the men's team, all-around and vault titles as well as a bronze on the parallel bars.

World record holder and Olympic Champion Adam Peaty made his international breakthrough competing for Team England at Glasgow 2014, winning two medals and Laura Kenny beat Elinor Baker from Wales in the women’s points race to secure a track cycling gold medal.
