Before I conclude this blog post for the night, I would like to say that this year has been England’s year, as we have an astounding, overall amount of 165 medals (56 Gold, 55 Silver and 54 Bronze). This has certainly been one of the best Commonwealth Games we have all had. Australia have done absolutely well since the start of the 20th Commonwealth Games on the 23rd July 2014.

Other Commonwealth countries, such as Canada, India, Scotland etc. have done absolutely well, considering the fact this year’s Commonwealth Games have gone so quick. As the final few hours of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games tick away, this will always be the main Commonwealth Games we shall all remember. The 21st Commonwealth Games begin 4 years from now in Australia’s Gold Coast.

Thank you for viewing this blog post :-).
