Glasgow sparkled with Commonwealth Games. Did your country participate?
Lagos-London, New Delhi-Jo’Borg; athletes of Commonwealth nations displayed skills
Around the world, millions of eyes watched for emerging champions and stars.
She did it. Blessing Okagbare. Nigeria’s sprint queen…Gold medals in 100m and 200m
Gold and Silver medals were hauled by athletes. So was bronze. Britain and Australia top medals table
On the tracks, on the pitch; they ran, jumped, fell, tumbled, threw, in Commonwealth spirit
Who are the Commonwealth countries? Those formerly colonized by Britain
Games bring them together every 4 years, in unity, and sporting spirit
Again, were doping scandals and other flaws. Need to check this in future games
Men and women compete; break records; set new standards; get global recognition
Every athlete should compete at global level to match best practices
So did Team Nigeria @ Glasgow 2014, 8th position on medals table, Presidential reception at Abuja
