Commonwealth Games: Canada looks To Replicate Glasgow 2014 Success
Remember the Glasgow games? The Motherland (bless her) took 174 medals, the Aussies gained 137, and the Canadians were 3rd place with 82 medals. But with the next installment of the Commonwealth Games happening in the Gold Coast Canada hopes to reap a few more - maybe to reach over 100 medals.
Starting in April 4 extending to the 15th the Games will draw more than 6500 athletes, officials from 70+ countries, cover 18 sports and 7 para-sports being played across 18 venues. Sports making the first appearance are beach volleyball, para-triathlon and women's rugby sevens.
With permanent venues mixing with the natural beautiful environment that is the sunny weather, golden sands, blue waters, and the vibrant city itself this Commonwealth Games is sure to not disappoint.
