Glasgow sparkled with Commonwealth Games. Did your country participate?

Lagos-London, New Delhi-Jo’Borg; athletes of  Commonwealth nations displayed skills

Around the world, millions of eyes watched for emerging champions and stars.

She did it. Blessing Okagbare. Nigeria’s sprint queen…Gold medals in 100m and 200m

Gold and Silver medals were hauled by athletes. So was bronze. Britain and Australia top medals table

On the tracks, on the pitch; they ran, jumped, fell, tumbled, threw, in Commonwealth spirit

Who are the Commonwealth countries? Those formerly colonized by Britain


Games bring them together every 4 years, in unity, and sporting spirit

Again, were doping scandals and other flaws. Need to check this in future games

Men and women compete; break records; set new standards; get global recognition

Every athlete should compete at global level to match best practices

So did Team Nigeria @ Glasgow 2014, 8th position on medals table, Presidential reception at Abuja
