Glasgow hosts the 20th edition of the Commonwealth Games via Wikipedia:

The Commonwealth Games (formerly the British Empire Games (1930-1950), British Empire and Commonwealth Games (1954-1966), and British Commonwealth Games (1970-1974)[1]) is an international, multi-sport event involving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. The event was first held in 1930 and has taken place every four years ever since (except 1942 and 1946 which were cancelled due to World War II). The games are described as the third largest multi-sport event in the world, after the Olympic Games and the Asian Games.

 

Schedule

(as per the official document)

Unfortunately the schedule given is not the most details, it doesn’t separate out the subdivisions clearly within the timetable.

Thanks to New Zealand CWG team member David Bishop for the info on the subdivisions.  In regards to the Artistic subdivisions, each subdivision competes half of their apparatus on the first day and half on the second day, we have no idea why or who thought of this. All times BST.

Online Streaming & Television Coverage

Recently it was announced that the Commonwealth Games will be live streamed internationally via YouTube. The CWG YouTube Channel can be found here. If any other live streams are discovered, we will post them on the Full Twist Facebook and Twitter pages along with links for the official live stream.

As yet there does not appear to be a BBC tv schedule available for these dates although BBC are promising to provide of 1,300 hours of coverage. We will update this post once information on gymnastics has become available.

    I wonder why the WAG AA is 15mins longer than the MAG, when MAG has more apparatus? It’s a mystery!

  2. avril enslow says:

    There are more WAG gymnasts per session. WAG and MAG are doing half each day as FIG ruled that the judging panels should be as per OG and WC – 9. Having 9 per panel meant that only 2 or 3 events could run each day. Otherwise there would need more technical officials than CWG would allow
    .

    I have tickets for Tuesday the 29th and it clearly says on them that the morning is a qualification session and the afternoon is a final (but no further details). Who knows what I’ll end up seeing!
