After reading this Article on the BBC Sport website the Commonwealth Games Opening ceremony went smoothley and all 71 competing countries participated in the opening ceremony.
The opening ceremony may have gone smoothely but according to this Article on the BBC Sport website the official weigh-in for the Boxing competition has turned into a farce and has been put back until Tuesday after complaints that the test scales used were faulty after several fighters were left having to shed weight to reach there desired category. The scales will be recalibrated for the weigh-in to take place on the opening morning of the bouts.
It looks like the Games crisis will continue for a bit longer even though the Opening Ceremony went well.
It looks like I’ll be able to Blog on the Games crisis for a bit longer, hopefully I will be able to Blog more positively about the Games before they come to an end on the 14th of October.
