What are Commonwealth Games?
An international multi-sport event held quadrennially among athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations, the Commonwealth Games are sometimes referred to as the Friendly Games. Since 1930, the event has been held every four years, except in 1942 and 1946.
This glorious festival of sport aims to unite the Commonwealth family through the core values of humanity, equality, and destiny. Athletes compete in the spirit of friendship and fair play in this event, known as the ‘Friendly Games.’
An association of 56 former British colonies, the Commonwealth of Nations is simply known as the Commonwealth. In the Commonwealth, the Queen is the head of state. The member states have no legal obligations to one another. They are connected by their use of the English language and their shared history.
