If you're missing the track and field events from the Olympics, then look no further, the Commonwealth Games have arrived. Their tagline: "17 sports. 11 days. 1 place to be." With similar events such as gymnastics, cycling and badminton, the games provide for all kinds of tastes, although there are fewer than in London and other Olympic schedules. Glasgow presents a great opportunity for smaller nations to have their chance in the spotlight, including the dissolution of Team GB into England, Scotland and Wales. If you're looking for a place to hang out during the week and a bit of Commonwealth action, then you've found the spot!
