Sindhu leads Indian contingent at Commonwealth Games

Vijender Singh has decided to turn pro and is tasting great success

Canadians will be able to catch all the action at Gold Coast by visiting DAZN.com, a live sports streaming service and the exclusive home for live coverage of the Canadian team at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

"Sometimes you make mistakes and we cop it".

Ahye said she was humbled by the honour, as Team TTO prepares for an evening which will see the packed Carrara Stadium getting a taste of the Carnival spirit, with some of the athletes displaying TRIBE Carnival costumes during the parade.

The programme error follows a printing mistake revealed in February that had the wrong day listed for the opening ceremony on some 14,000 tickets sold for the event.

It then moved on to a depiction of Australia's indigenous culture.

Britain's heir to the throne, after receiving the Queen's Baton, which had travelled for 388 days and more than 230,000km around the world, declared the Games open.

If the Australia's constitutional future is unclear, so to arguably is the fate of an event which is in its ninth decade.

In this sport-obsessed country hosting the Games for a fifth time and eager to forget about the national cricket team's ball-tampering scandal, this sporting festival should prove a welcome distraction.




The mascot of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games is a blue, surfing koala called Borobi.

Among them was the Kenyan team which encompasses a group of athletes that will take part in various field events and races.

English breaststroker Adam Peaty, who has his eye on an unprecedented sub-57 seconds in the 100 metres, is another who will try to crash the Australian pool party.

He added: "They're going to be so valuable after the Games because of that mistake".

In athletics, Gold Coast's world champion hurdler Sally Pearson is battling an Achilles' problem but Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake should provide fireworks in the absence of the retired Usain Bolt.

"I send my warm wishes to every competing individual and team and to all those who have helped to bring about the first Commonwealth Games in this very special part of Australia - the Gold Coast".

More than 4,500 athletes from 71 nations will compete for 275 gold medals.

The first events take place on Thursday with the Games scheduled to finish on April 15.
