2014 Commonwealth Games: July 23 to August 3

The Commonwealth Games (CG) are being held in Glasgow, Scotland this year. CG is an international, multi-sport event involving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. The event was first held in 1930 and are the third largest multi-sport event in the world, after the Olympic and Asian Games.

The games are overseen by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), which also designs the sporting programme and selects the host cities. The CG will be broadcast on CBC, which features a lengthy list of sports and competitions. Two sports I am looking forward to watching are squash and cycling. Squash is so much harder than it looks!
