Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games

The 2014 Commonwealth Games (officially the XX Commonwealth Games) will be held in Glasgow, Scotland from 23 July to 3 August 2014. Held once every four years, the Commonwealth Games is often referred to as the 'Friendly Games' and will be one of the largest multi-sport event ever held in Scotland.

The scale of the Games has since expanded to become one of the world's second largest multi-sport event, with a participation of over 6,500 athletes from 71 nations participating in the 17 sports in 2014. 

Singapore will be sending 70 athletes to participate in seven sports - Aquatics, athletics, badminton, gymnastics, shooting, table tennis and weightlifting.
