Cash to Vic athletes to Commonwealth Games

AUSTRALIA'S Commonwealth Games team has received a $450,000 boost from the Victorian government to help them to travel to Scotland for the Games.

Premier Denis Napthine and Sports Minister Damian Drum announced the grant on Thursday, with the money going to the Victorian Commonwealth Games Association to assist Victorian athletes with travel costs.

"We expect that Victoria will once again punch above its weight. We expect that while we are only 25 per cent of the Australian population, over 30 per cent of the selected teams will be Victorians," Dr Napthine said.

"That's a great tribute to the skill of Victoria and also our grassroots sports, our VIS (Victorian Institute of Sport), and our coaches and our sports system.
"We wish all the athletes well, and our $450,000 will help our athletes as they go for gold in Glasgow."

The Commonwealth Games begins in Glasgow, Scotland, on July 23.
