Preview – Commonwealth Games 2018

Commonwealth Games

The 2018 Commonwealth Games begin in Australia’s Gold Coast today.

With the opening ceremony taking place this morning, the sports itself don’t really kick off until after midnight, and remember that unlike the Olympics there is no Team GB – in the Commonwealth Games, the four home nations compete against each other.

Among the main events today are the triathlon, with England’s Brownlee brothers the favourites in the main event, while Olympic bronze medallist Vicky Holland competes for the women.

Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony is on BBC One at 10.30, and live coverage begins at 00.15.
