What is the point of the Commonwealth Games?

You are here: Home / Blog / Sport / What is the point of the Commonwealth Games?
Could the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow be the last of their kind?

After the high points of Manchester 2002 and Melbourne 2006, they have reached their nadir in India. And who is to blame? Step forward the cumbersome Commonwealth Games Federation though it will be allowed to linger on and on and on.

The real problem is that ever since they started in 1930 as the Empire Games in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada they have been dominated by England and or the "Dominions". Australia has been the highest achieving team for ten games, England for seven and Canada for one. How then can this possibly be a benefit for the Commonwealth?

It's time to radically rethink them or call it a day.
