Proudest moment - flag bearer Edgar

Cyclist Ross Edgar has revealed his sense of pride after being named as the Scotland team flag-bearer for Sunday's Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.

"It really is an honour to have been chosen to carry the Saltire and lead Team Scotland out for the opening ceremony," the 27-year-old said.

Edgar, who won an Olympic silver medal in 2008, has won one gold, one silver and two bronze medals in his two Games.

The cyclist will ride in the sprint and keirin events at the velodrome.

Edgar, who was born in Suffolk but qualifies for Scotland through his Kilwinning-born father, said he was determined to shine.

We have a great cycling team here in Delhi, the biggest Scotland has ever had at a Commonwealth Games

"The fact that the selection is made by the other athletes makes it even more special," he said.

"This is my third Commonwealth Games and I won medals at both of the previous ones, so I would love to keep that record up.

"We have a great cycling team here in Delhi, the biggest Scotland has ever had at a Commonwealth Games, with a lot of exciting new talent coming through.

"I'm looking forward to getting back on the track with the team."
