A Chorleywood councillor took part as an official helping make the recent 2022 Commonwealth Games a success.
Ciaran Reed, who is the district councillor for the Chorleywood North and Sarratt ward, worked as a video judge arbiter assessment for the track cycling event at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London.
His role meant he was videoing races so referees could rewatch the footage in the case of any rule infractions, crashes or other incidents.
It’s not the first time that councillor Reed has taken on this role, having participated as an official in the 2018 Track Cycling World Cup round in London and 2021 Track Cycling Champions League.
Cllr Reed said: “It’s always good fun to be so close to such a high-level sporting event and be involved in the officiating decisions.”
The 2022 Commonwealth Games took place from July 28 and August 8, with 72 nations and 5,054 athletes participating in the event, with 280 events in 20 sports. It was the largest edition of the annual competition ever.
