Scotland Hockey Team Captain Kareena Cuthbert missed the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow due to injury in 2014. But She play in the Gold Coast. After a week of happy recollections marking the fifth anniversary of Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games, Kareena Cuthbert finally gets to enjoy a miniature version of her own.
Scotland’s hockey captain was a frustrated spectator in 2014, a cruciate knee injury denying her the chance to take part in a home Games.This is a special one because it’s at home,” she said. Because I missed out on Glasgow in 2014 I’ve been really looking forward to this one in particular.
It was really frustrating at the time not being able to play because of injury but that happens in sport. You have your highs and your lows and that was a real disappointment. But it’s a long time in the past and now we have another home tournament to look forward to.
Cuthbert, a gregarious individual known universally as Kaz, is one of the senior figures in what she calls “a fresh-faced squad”. But if she is planning on making this her tournament swansong, she is keeping that to herself for now.
